THIS IS FOR REAL -- INTERVIEW

QUESTION FROM LIVE ANNOUNCER:

'

. \

TODAY, WE'RE SPEAKING WITH CAROL SNYPE CRAWFORD, DIRECTOR OF"

THE OFFICE OF MINORITY HEALTH, WHICH IS A PART OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH

DIVISION OF THE GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES. THE

DEPARTMENT RECENTLY DEVELOPED 11THIS IS FOR REAL, 11 A SERIES OF

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS THAT ARE (WILL BE) AIRING ON (CALL

LETTERS) STATION.

' ,

.

CAROL, WHY IS MINC?RITY HEALTH SUCH A VITAL ISSUE? (TAPED RESPONSE ~- TRACK 1)

MINORITY HEALTH IS A VERY VITAL ISSUE FOR THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY. WE ARE LIVING BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE.. WE'RE EARNING MORE MONEY, BECOMING BETTER EDUCATED, AND A LOT OF US ARE EXERCISING . . MORE AND EATING HEALTHIER.
-
. BUT OVERALL, AFRIGAN AMERICANS STILL DON'T LIVE AS LONG OR AS WELL AS WHITES IN GEORGIA. FOR EXAMPLE, MORE WHITE WOMEN HAVE BREAST CANCER IN GEORGIA, BUT AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN DIE MORE OFTEN FROM THE DISEASE.

IN ALL OF THE LEADING INDICATORS OF HEALTH WE FIND SIGNIFICANT HEALTH STATUS DISPARITIES BETWEEN AFRICAN AMERICANS AND WHITES. THE LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE HEALTH CONDITIONS WHICH ARE INFLUENCED BY LIFESTYLE CHOICES.

THE RADIO SERIES 11THIS IS FOR REAL11 PROMOTES SELF AWARENESS AND HEALTHY LIVING. THERE ARE ISSUES THAT 'SPEAK TO WOMEN, TO MEN, TO SENIORS, TO CHILDREN, AND TEENS-- THERE'S A MOTIVATIONAL MESSAGE FOR EVERYONE.

LIVE ANNOUNCER:

THANK YOU, CAROL, FOR JOINING US TODAY.

FOR REAL-- SERIES 1: INTRO

(TRACK ~ - :30)

. IT'S TIME FOR A FOOD CHANGE

,

.

WE ARE TOLD TO ACCEPT THE THINGS WE CANNOT CHANGE: BUT, WE MUST

HAVE THE WISDOM TO KNOW WHAT WE CAN CHANGE.

AFRICAN AMERICANS DIE MORE OFTEN AND SOONER BECAUSE OF HEART ATIACKS, STROKES AND DIABETES. WE CAN CHANGE OUR DIETS. .
' .
FATTY AND SALTY FOODS ARE ROBBING SOME OF US OF OUR FUTURE. A PIECE OF TURKEY, INSTEAD OF A HAM HOC_K IN YOUR TURNIP GREENS IS HEJ\LTHIER AND TASTES JUST AS GOOD; CHANGE ~NO LIVE.

THI$ IS DR. ALPHA BRYAN AND THIS IS FOR REAL, A MESSAGE FROM THE'

FAT IS .NOT FINE
OUR GRANDMOTHERS USED TO PINCH A BABY'S CHEEK AND SAY, "AIN'T SHE FATAND FINE." NOT EVERY "SHE" IS GOING TO WEAR A SIZE 8 AND NOT EVERY "HE" WILL HAVEA 32-INCH-WAIST. BUT OUR COMMUNITY NEEDS TO KNOW THAT OBESITY IS A RISK FACTOR FOR MANY PREVENTABLE CHRONIC DISEASES, LIKE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND DIABETES.
LET'S EAT.SMARTER, LIVE BETIER, AND LIVE LONGER. WE STILL LOVE OUR GRANDMAS, BUT TODAY WE KNOW THAT FIT IS FINE!

PH(ct 2 &-ts New radio series provides .. real .. messages

for better living

'' This Is For Real" is a new series of radio messages that promote self-awareness and healthy living for the African-American community in Georgia. In June, the Georgia Department of Human Resources' (DHR) Division of Public Health, Office of Minority Health, and the Office of Communications will distribute the series to 56 radio stations across Georgia.

Most of the 30-second spots feature Alpha Bryan, M.D., assistant director for the Division of Public Health. Some spots are narrated by Floyd Wood, assistant to DHR's commissioner; Robert Johnson, Division of Family and Children Services' statewide consultant for the Fatherhood program; and Carol Snype Crawford, director of Public Health's Office of Minority Health.

The subjects were developed by the Office of Minority Health and prevention experts, with research and scripts provided by the DHR communications staff. The media crew at the Georgia Department of Administrative Services produced the radio spots in their studio.

There are six groups of spots in the package. They address general well-being, women, meri, children and teens, seniors, and summer safety. Some of the titles are: "Fat is not fine," "Deal with stress," "Managing many medications," and "Don't leave your child in the car."

Please let us know what you think of these new messages.
