Radio Public Service Announcements:
Promoting BadgerCare Plus in Dane County

On August 26, CKF coordinated the taping of public service announcements promoting help for uninsured kids at several Dane County schools. Madison Metropolitan School District Superintendent Dan Nerad and Shiva Bidar-Sielaff from the Latino Council of Health joined by several children and a parent took to the airwaves to promote the importance of health care coverage. They recorded public service announcements in English and Spanish at the La Movida studio in Madison. Both versions have been running on radio stations throughout Dane County.

The goal of these PSAs is to make sure parents with uninsured kids take a moment to explore options for high-quality, affordable health care and to let them know they can get help through certain schools.
