Using Fact Sheets Effectively

  • Consider customizing these fact sheets when templates are available so that the images used reflect your target communities. 
  • Print and distribute fact sheets through various community locations and trusted organizations working with RIM communities. Some ideas include faith-based organizations, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), youth groups, consulates and K-12 schools. Ask employers to put them in break rooms. You can also try libraries, community centers, farmers’ markets, grocery stores, laundromats and other high-traffic places.
  • Share them on social media or on text-based apps like WhatsApp by taking a screenshot or converting the PDF to an image. Consider copy/pasting some of the statements from the fact sheet as your caption.
  • Give a presentation using the information found on the long fact sheet. You can copy/paste information into a PowerPoint or use it as your presentation script.
