MEDIA ADVISORY: ‘Healthy Kansas Minute’ PSAs Now Available

Controlling High Blood Pressure – The Silent Killer

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has posted MP3 files containing ‘Healthy Kansas Minute’ public service announcements on controlling high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, a serious but treatable and preventable condition. The files can be downloaded from www.kdheks.gov/press_room.htm.

KDHE is making the ‘Healthy Kansas Minute’ public service announcements available to media to promote health awareness events and issues. The department posts the PSAs in MP3 and transcript format 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.
