Their stories saved lives. So can yours.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is conducting a national search to find people with compelling stories to be featured in a future Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®) campaign. Similar to previous years, the campaign will feature real people who have had life-changing, smoking-related health problems and their loved ones who care for them.
CDC is looking for people who used to smoke and have a smoking-related health condition including, but not limited to:
- Heart Disease
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) or another smoking-related lung disease
CDC is also looking for people who used to smoke and have a diagnosed mental health condition such as depression or anxiety (please see corresponding flyer attachment 1). Additionally, CDC is also looking for loved ones who have had to regularly care for someone suffering from a smoking-related health condition (please see corresponding flyer attachment 2).
