MEDIA ADVISORY: 'Healthy Kansas Minute’ PSAs Now Available

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has posted MP3 files containing ‘Healthy Kansas Minute’ public service announcements for Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, which is taking place during the month of March. The files can be downloaded from www.kdheks.gov/press_room.htm.

KDHE will begin making ‘Healthy Kansas Minute’ public service announcements available to media to promote health awareness events and issues. The department plans to post the PSAs in MP3 and transcript format on a weekly basis – PSAs will be posted to the site on Fridays. Whenever possible, both 30- and 60-second versions will be available for a different health event each week. KDHE grants permission to broadcast the PSAs and post them to Websites.
