Media and Policy Environments

Many Philadelphians live in environments that promote poor nutrition and physical inactivity. The media and policy environments can play a critical role in promoting healthier norms, providing people with needed information, and influencing the behavior of consumers.

Our Action Plan
  • Conduct a multi-media educational initiative to decrease sugary drink consumption.
  • Educate consumers about and enforce Philadelphia's Menu Labeling Ordinance.
  • Advance public health goals through the earned media and social media platforms.  
  • Create and implement a media campaign to educate consumers on the links between sodium consumption and heart health.  

2011-12 Achievements
  • Deployed ads on television, radio, public transit, corner stores, and newsstands and via text messaging with over 40 million impressions.
  • Developed to provide facts, tips, and resources on cutting back sugary drink consumption.
