Aug 20, 2013, 1:00 PM

NewPublicHealth is looking to highlight some of new and captivating public health education and outreach campaigns through our Public Health Campaign of the Month series. Have you worked with a successful and innovative campaign to help spread awareness of public health issues and engage your community in healthier behaviors? We want to recognize the great effort put into those campaigns and the positive work they are doing, so nominate them!

Campaigns could include videos, public service announcements in print or in video, websites, infographics, social media efforts, or other ways to spread the word about a particular public health issue.

To submit a campaign to be considered for the Public Health Campaign of the Month please send the following items to

  • Name of the Campaign
  • Location
  • Website
  • Related image
  • What public health issue does it address, and what's the scope of the problem?
  • What methods are being used to address the issue?
  • What results have you seen thus far? Is it catching a lot of attention?
  • Contact information

Complete submissions will then be evaluated based on innovation, the ability for the campaign to be replicated in other areas, its potential for impact on the community. If your campaign is selected to be featured as an upcoming Public Health Campaign of the Month, we will contact you with any further questions.
