Tobacco Free Florida refers to the Florida’s education program that aims at helping tobacco users quit. The program includes helpful strategies, facts about nicotine as well as motivational information that powerfully encourages a tobacco-free life (Tobacco Free Florida, n.d.). Meanwhile, a range of media channels plays an increasingly important role in promoting the mentioned program. More specifically, social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, are extremely popular today, especially among the younger generation, which creates a comprehensive platform for raising awareness about the issue at hand and advertising the program’s website (Jane, Hagger, Foster, Ho, & Pal, 2018). Zika Free Florida is another program that provides help and consultation to prevent development of Zika, disease that develops due to a mosquito-borne virus. Instagram and YouTube are another powerful tool to promote the agenda. The format of a video can have a significant effect upon a viewer evoking a strong emotional response. Instagram presents a visually appealing source of receiving information that is readily used by many users around the world, especially by those who like to travel to foreign countries and do not know what exactly one should expect.  

Childhood obesity is another important public concern that requires special attention in health policy development. Promoting awareness about the peril associated with childhood obesity is pivotal for maintaining the nation’s health and decreasing the burden of chronic diseases. Social media campaigns may help in this regard. Again, the use of Instagram may trigger the interest of policymakers, while providing parents with the necessary material aids (Edney et al., 2018). It should be noted that such social media as YouTube and Facebook may serve as a source of social support.The posts and videos in media challenge may contain information about the ramifications related to childhood obesity, which can help a user make a change in their lives. They may illustrate examples of how others have already achieved positive results, thereby increasing individual’s awareness about the effective strategies and health promotion techniques (Mason, Gardner, Outlaw, 2016). Users see that they are not alone with this program and may track each other’s progress getting inspired and motivated. Thus, social media can be considered as an active agent in raising awareness and encouraging to make a positive change in one’s lifestyle or environment.

This is the original question if you needed to see what is about 

Reflect on Florida's current health education programs such as Zika Free Florida, Tobacco Free Florida and consider what part the media plays in such disease prevention programs. Identify a specific public health issue that you believe needs to be highlighted in health policy and based on your textbook readings discuss how social media can be used as a health promotion tool to improve public awareness on the selected topic.
