New “Our Community Deserves” Materials

The places where we live, work, learn, and play can impact our health. To help share this important message with African American and Hispanic audiences, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed a broad range of materials for print, digital, and radio placement with an “Our Community Deserves” theme. These resources focus on topics such as increased physical activity for kids and access to healthy food options, and are available for the public to share through blogs or Web sites. Local communities are encouraged to share the pre-written articles and ads with their local media outlets, and/or customize these resources for their own newsletters, Web sites, and publications.
