Organizations and community members across Alaska use data and evidence-based strategies presented in the Healthy Alaskans plan to work towards 2030 targets. Below are some of the accomplishments and successes from partners and community members:
The State of Alaska, Division of Public Health, Physical Activity and Nutrition program addresses Healthy Alaskan objectives 9, 15, and 16 through the Play Every Day media campaign.
Starting in 2012, Play Every Day has provided families with materials to encourage daily physical activity and consumption of less sugary drinks for children. The campaign has improved parental understanding of the risks of sugary drinks and has provided resources for activities they can do as a family to stay active. Read more about the campaign here.
The State of Alaska Office of Boating Safety and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium’s Injury Prevention program worked to address unintentional boating injuries by providing life jackets to Alaskan people across the state as well as creating the Float Coat song to help spread the message using Alaska Native traditional storytelling. Both have helped promote safe boating practices and teach the importance of using life jackets. Click to see the Float Coat song or read more about boating safety.
