Tips From Former Smokers®

AACVPR is proud to partner with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention‘s Tips From Former Smokers campaign.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched the first-ever federally funded 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 has developed materials and resources for doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and many other healthcare providers so they can help their patients quit smoking.
