Single over-riding communication objectives


Single over-riding communication objectives (SOCO) are used during interactions with the media to emphasize on the most important points of a topic. HPHF coalition members developed the following SOCOs in 2014 to provide partners with easy key points in the event they are interviewed about HPHF or its focus areas. A SOCO worksheet from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was used as a template.



Social media posts


These social media messages were developed in partnership with HPHF Coalition members and can be used by partner organizations or the public to promote healthy pets, families and environment:
