Charlotte Lombardo is a health promotion student at the University of Toronto. She is the co-leader of TeenNet's Youth Action initiative, in which youth are given disposable cameras to document the strengths and weaknesses of their community, and identify strategies for action, using the Photovoice methodology. Since 1995 TeenNet has been researching how to use innovative tools to engage youth in health promotion.

Photovoice will be the topic of an upcoming OHPE bulletin
