  1. I work for the Nevada Division of Public & Behavioral Health, Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health Section. In my review of programs to increase physical activity in adolescents, GUARDS was noted as having social marketing materials (brochures, blogs, website content, tweets, etc.) inclusive of healthy lifestyle messages. I was excited to learn of the program and would like additional information how we can use your campaigns focused on improving the health of adolescents.

    Please inform me how we can learn more about the promotional campaign in Delaware – as I could not access it on the website.
