trainingSeveral of our marketing efforts were honored at the National Conference on Health Communication in Atlanta.  Our Intranet Re-design, Call 9-1-1 CPR and Cardiac Arrest video, Dairy Made Easy radio ads and Language Access List grabbed the attention of judges from Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia.

The winners in the annual contest are on the NPHIC website and serve as excellent examples of public health campaigns throughout the country.  Topics include digital and print media created by state and local health departments as well as work done by outside agencies.  Great inspiration for those who are searching for ideas that work to spread public health.

Congratulations to our staff involved in these great projects.  Because of your efforts we’re finding innovative and creative ways to spread important and life-saving public health messages to Arizonans.  For example the Call 9-1-1 CPR and Cardiac Arrest video has been viewed more than 1,000 of times on YouTube and educated viewers on the steps to take when someone is in cardiac arrest.
