Tips From Former Smokers®

AACVPR is proud to partner with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the Tips From Former Smokers campaign.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched the first-ever federally paid national tobacco education campaign—Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®) – in March 2012. The Tips campaign profiles real people living with serious long-term health effects from smoking and secondhand smoke exposure. Tips also features compelling stories of the toll these smoking-related conditions have taken on family members.

The Tips campaign engages doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and many other healthcare providers so they can encourage their smoking patients to quit for good.
