CDC Releases New “Tips From Former Smokers” Media, Resources for Public Health Professionals

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently launched a new round of media materials from the Tips From Former Smokers, offering a powerful and compelling view into the health consequences of tobacco use. The new media materials include advertisements on national network and cable television, in magazines, and online. The advertisements feature new stories about the impact of smoking on Tips participants and their loved ones and detail smoking-related conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer, heart disease, and more.

The advertisement series began airing on Monday and will run through early October. As part of the campaign, free resources for public health professionals are available to assist in education and awareness about the dangers of cigarette smoking. New materials are available from the Tips download center and include video, audio, print, and digital mediums. Additional information on the CDC Tips From Former Smokers campaign is available here.
