Subject: Brochures and other materials
An incident today brought to light that there are outdated materials
in PHD offices. We need to assure that all brochures, pamphlets and
any other informational materials that are available to DOH clients
are reviewed and approved and have the current DOH logo on them.
By the end Wednesday, February 15, I need all bureaus, regions and
local offices to remove from client areas all informational materials
that have not been reviewed and approved by the Secretary's office.
Those that are approved should all have the current DOH logo on them.
If there is not a current DOH logo on the material, remove it.
Any materials that have not been reviewed and approved that
staff/programs would like to continue using should be submitted to the
Director's office for review and approval before they are made
available to clients. All materials approved under prior
administrations need to be approved by the current administration. We
will develop a process to review these materials quickly.
By the end of this week, all offices in PHD also need to scour
closets, storage areas, etc to gather any and all outdated brochures,
pamphlets or other educational materials that may have been used in
the past or that have a prior DOH logo. These should be put in a
secure place until we give further direction on what is to be done
with those materials.
I thank you for your assistance in addressing this issue quickly.
