Priority 4 : Maintain a comprehensive public education and communications effort that uses a social marketing approach to promote physical activity and other health messages for children and their families.

This priority is not a standalone activity, but a way to make positive change by promoting healthy schools, healthcare and communities through social marketing. The Alaska Alliance for Healthy Kids supports Play Every Day, a social marketing campaign produced by the Alaska Obesity Prevention and Control Program and Healthy Futures.
