Create a written press release for your health communication campaign.
Press releases are one of the easiest ways to notify the public of important health information. Press releases are usually sent to newspapers, radio stations, and other media based agencies where information is to be released to the public. There are many benefits for using press releases. These include:
Announcing an event, schedule, study, campaign, or a workshop
Telling people why you think this health related issue or topic is important
Showing your perspective on the development of a certain health issue
Increasing the visibility of your health program or your health communication campaign
Reminding people what your group or organization does and how active in the community you are
Allowing you to highlight or summarize health-related information
