The themes for RWII Prevention Week 2012 are the use of health communication materials (videos, posters, fact sheets, etc.) to educate the public on how to prevent RWIIs and drowning prevention. CDC will enhance its communication outreach and impact by developing new educational materials for the public. In addition, CDC will publish new information on the effectiveness of recent health communication campaigns and updated data on drowning.
