Preventative Screenings Campaign

Preventative Screening image

The “Take Your Health in the Right Direction” campaign encourages patients to be advocates for their own health. By using supporting information and statistics to reinforce what could happen if regular appointments are missed or skipped, the campaign's audience is educated — and hopefully encouraged — to be more active in these important preventative health appointments that could save their lives.

This toolkit was developed through the Delta Region Community Health Systems Development (DRCHSD) program.

Campaign Objectives

  • Educate health care consumers about preventative screenings that are recommended to maintain proper wellness:
    • Mammography
    • Colonoscopy
    • Medicare Wellness Exam
  • Increase overall health and wellness of community members (improving population health).
  • Provide information to the audience in order to empower them to be in control of their own health outcomes.

Target Audiences

  • Colonoscopy messages: Men and women, ages 45 and above
  • Mammography messages: Women, ages 39-69
  • Medicare wellness exam messages: Men and women, ages 65 and above
