Now is the time to start thinking about what each of us as individuals and organizations can do in May for MCS Awareness and Education Month. It's only 4 months away an it often takes time to contact politicians and community leaders to coordinate events. So, it is a good time to think about what we'd each like to do and create a plan for when to launch it into motion. Last year, MCS America published an Event Planning Kit. This kit is full of ideas for ways to promote awareness, including:
Governor ProclamationsSchool ProgramsHealth ProvidersLibrary DisplaysState Capitol EventsPress ReleasesMedia CoverageA Handy MCS Fact Sheetand, Real Life Examples of Prior Events
This kit can still be downloaded from http://mcs-america.org/MCSAwarenessMonthEventPlanningKit.pdf.
Even putting a few brochures up on bulletin boards when you visit medical providers or head out to shop is helpful.
Good luck with all your efforts... no matter how big or small!
