Today, at our last class meeting of the semester (for HDFS 2367 Mon/Wed) a student shared a bumper sticker with me. Here it is!
She said it seemed like a very good fit with the class we’ve shared and I agree. That’s why I am sharing the information with you now after checking out the website first, of course. I love it when students make connections with course material and share information (like this) with me.
THIS IS PUBLIC HEALTH
(from their website):
The This is Public Health (TIPH) campaign was created by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) to brand public health and raise awareness of how public health affects individuals, families, communities, and populations. The simple statement – This is Public Health – has proven to be a powerful tool in raising awareness about and support for public health efforts. Join this global effort to promote public health awareness.
This is Public Health promotes public health awareness through social media, which allows users to interact with the campaign via Facebook or Instagram. Take photos of public health efforts, issues, or events and share your photos on social media by using #thisispublichealth. Stay up to date with photo contests, monthly challenges, and campaign activities by following us on social media.
Interested in getting involved? The resource page is where you’ll find materials to help you build your campaign. Traditionally, the campaign utilizes stickers with the slogan This is Public Health placed in strategic locations around communities to build awareness of the many ways in which public health impacts our well being. Other resources include campaign downloads, messaging, and videos.
