Health Care Professionals:

  • Print the TakeCHARGE information for your office for patients and staff (many people who work in health care are not prepared to be patients)
  • Share information with your patients and their families
  • Share the 5 Steps and spread the word—through social media, a press release, presentations, or word-of-mouth—that you want your patients to TakeCHARGE

Business Owners, Corporate Leaders and CEOs:

  • Distribute  TakeCHARGE Campaign information to your staff for them and their family
  • Invite speakers to talk to your staff each month on the topic of the month
  • Remember: better-prepared employees and family members mean less lost work time and improved performance!

Community Members:

  • Become a TakeCHARGE Ambassador and share this information
  • Create community presentations or invite speakers to events 
  • Shoot videos of your friends and neighbors talking about TakeCHARGE. What did they do, why did they do it?
  • Share on social media, develop fun information such as memes; look for articles about each of the 5 Steps, and share them!
