Chalupka Co-Authors Article on Seafood-Consumption Education

By: Worcester State University News

Stephanie Chalupka (Nursing) is the author of “Web-Based Environmental Health Education: Fish Facts” published in the Journal Continuing Education in Nursing in January 2013.

The combination of conflicting media messages about these risks and benefits and limited knowledge has led to confusion about how to properly advise people about safe fish consumption.

“Fish Facts for Health Professionals” was the result of a collaborative effort of environmental, public health, medical, nursing, and media experts to create a web-based educational series to address the need for reliable information on fish consumption.

Using interviews and real case studies, the 3- to 5-minute media modules provided a strong visual element while remaining conversational. The modules were viewed worldwide.

Her co-author is Dr. Laura Anderko of Georgetown University.
