“Personal” Public Service Announcements (PPSAs)

This year, CDC partnered with the University of Georgia’s New Media Institute to sponsor the creation of peer-generated messages by teams of students from six universities. The students translated evidence-based concepts into 10-30 second “personal” public service announcements (PPSAs) suitable for Web and cell phone distribution. Promotion will include distribution via mobile phones through a partnership with Verizon Wireless and posting on Web social media spaces such as CDC Facebook and CDC MySpace, as well as YouTube.
