    Public health advocacy occurs through media, legislative, and grassroots efforts. Although individual health advocacy for patient and client can be practiced, it should be stressed that public health advocacy, like the core discipline of public health, is undertaken to enhance the health of communities through improved health policies and programs. The news media, as a primary source of information, play a powerful role in shaping the dialogues that form community rules and standards. Why work with the media? Media advocacy is victim advocacy. The term media advocacy sounds scary, but it is the same type of work you do everyday in schools, counseling sessions and meetings. This type.

Workshop participants learn the distinguishing characteristics of media advocacy strategies so that they can develop a media advocacy plan.
