Media Campaigns

In Fall 2016, Community Health Partnership began a video social-norming campaign in cooperation with local videographer Chip Johnson, the Nemaha County Sheriff’s Department, and AHS youth group Y.A.R.B. The first of these, entitled “The Take Back Zombies”, was released October, 2016, and delivered a light yet important message of the importance of proper medication disposal at three of our area pharmacies. The second of these videos, “Sidetracked Santa”, reminded viewers of the dangers of distracted driving.

As the PSA project has grown, we have also observed growth in the participation of local community members and organizations. We would like to say a whole-hearted ‘thank you!’ to those who so generously dedicate their time, resources, (and yes, even their archery deer target) to help us deliver positive messages to the community!

All of our past and current PSAs can be viewed on our YouTube Channel, Community Health Partnership of Nemaha County.
