There is a separate playlist for each language on this channel. The following languages are available: English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Swahili, Kinyarwanda, and Lingala. For each language there is a three part video series: the first two videos contain information that anyone can use since they explain what the disease is and how to prevent transmission, but the third video is tailored to the Iowa City area because it talks about UIHC.
Materials and resources for outdoor social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic have been developed by Anne Abbot in partnership with the PRC. The signage is available in 8.5X11 and 36×24 yard sign sizes. The Implementation Guide features ideas for getting signage posted and where to place it for the best results. You can download the files below. 8.5X11 sized signage can be printed on a regular printer, yard signs will likely need to be printed by a professional printer.
The PRC has printed ‘Trail Etiquette” yard signs for communities to use if they lack printing funds. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or with questions!”
With Americans advised to stay in and around their homes, this National Minority Health Month (April) the Office of Minority Health (OMH) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will feature the theme Active & Healthy and focus on safe ways all communities can stay physically active and advance mental and emotional wellness.
Join OMH throughout April as we encourage everyone to stay active and support physical, mental and emotional wellness. This year, we invite everyone to join #ActiveandHealthy, a national social media campaign that will focus on ways we can stay active and healthy in and around the house while following the social distancing guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19. Daily themes will highlight steps people can take in and around the home to maintain and sustain an active and healthy lifestyle while reducing stress and anxiety.
#ActiveandHealthy will promote and share ways we can stay active and healthy during #NMHM2020 and throughout the year. OMH is also asking individuals to use the hashtag to post their own stories, ideas or tips about staying active and healthy. The campaign will include creative ways to keep older adults and children safe and physically engaged, along with ideas to stay connected with friends, family and communities.
OMH and national partners will also use the hashtag to promote the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans and the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion’s Move Your Way campaign.
Below are ways you can get informed, get involved, and get connected this National Minority Health Month:
Remember—becoming Active & Healthy in and around your home to stay physically and mentally well, while doing your part to slow the spread of COVID-19, is possible through simple changes to your daily routine—so get involved this #NMHM2020.
