Play Every Day messages travel across Alaska and even to the Caribbean
Play Every Day didn’t actually travel to the Caribbean, but some of our health messages encouraging kids and parents to make healthy choices were recently shared in Jamaica! The Heart Foundation of Jamaica reached out to DHSS asking if it could borrow our creative concept for this video about the health risks of sugary drinks for children. We were happy to share.
In Alaska, Play Every Day continues to share inspiring stories of how school districts across Alaska are making healthy drinks available to children. Visit the Play Every Day Success in Schools website to learn more and check out our new public service announcement featuring success stories from Utqiaġvik and Petersburg. Another new PSA, Get Out and Play, shows how Alaska kids are physically active in all kinds of weather and all kinds of ways. This video features children in communities all across Alaska, including Utqiaġvik, Unalakleet, Bethel, Mat-Su, Anchorage, Girdwood, Petersburg and Sitka.
