To create a media/digital campaign to promote community health messages geared to ethnic audiences.
Research was conducted using 12 focus groups to explore knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs regarding obesity. Focus groups were a mix of Caucasion, African American, Hispanic, and Multi-ethnic participants and occured in July/August 2013. The groups were segmented to represent two audiences: (1) Parents/Caregivers of young children (0–10 years, and (2), Parents/Caregivers of older children (11-18 years). Overall, the ads were perceived as positive, inspiring, and relevant to communities.
