  3. Why is [YOUR ORGANIZATION] doing this?
    A:
    Many Hispanic citizens in your community who live with the pain of arthritis don’t know or think that moderate exercise for 30 minutes a day, three or more times a week, can not only lessen pain but can also help them become more active and energetic. With your help, we want to communicate this potentially life-changing information.

  9. Can corporate logos be added to the campaign materials?
    A:
    Health departments, arthritis programs, or arthritis partnership name(s) and logo(s) can be added to the materials. It is possible to add corporate logos, but because the CDC logo is embedded in the materials, the process of seeking approval for this change is complicated and time-consuming.

    The CDC Technology Transfer Office needs to approve placement of any corporate logo with the CDC logo. A written request for approval must be submitted. The request should specify a clear plan that identifies the intervention and rationale for the additional logo and the purpose of the corporate sponsor. These requests generally require several rounds of questions from the Technology Transfer Office. In general, CDC may approve requests related to activities of the corporate sponsor as “good corporate citizenship” but will be reluctant to approve requests when it is clear that the goal is purely gain for the corporate partners.

  13. Are you interested in receiving in-kind support?
    A:
    Yes, in-kind support is very welcome. Perhaps you can include campaign information on your web site or in your newsletter. In addition, if your organization runs or attends any consumer conferences, perhaps our materials could be distributed at your booth. In the end, what is most important is that we get the message out in a variety of ways to reach as many people in our target audience as possible. We are open to any ideas you have to share.

  14. How long is the campaign?
    A:
    The campaign materials expire in 6 years (September 1, 2011), which correlates to the length of our talent agreements. When considering how long to run the campaign in your market, we recommend approximately four weeks. It is better to achieve a higher saturation of your message during a shorter period of time than to space your campaign out over several months. You may choose to run the campaign again at a later date, just keep the saturation concept in mind.
