Media Advocacy as a Service Learning Assignment: Assisting a Rural Domestic Violence Shelter
Media advocacy is a vital public health tool. It aids public health organizations in reaching their target populations with creative and innovative outreach strategies. In fall 2016, doctoral students in a communication and advocacy course developed a comprehensive media advocacy kit for a local community-based organization, Safe Haven, a Domestic Violence Shelter that serves over 500 individuals. Whereas the media advocacy kit has not been formally evaluated, overall feedback has been positive.
