CDC Tips Campaign Resources

In March 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched the first-ever paid national tobacco education campaign—Tips From Former Smokers (Tips). The Tips campaign profiles real people who are living with serious long-term health effects from smoking and secondhand smoke exposure.

Visit the Tips Web site CDC.gov/tips that includes the new ads, new information and many new resources – including new participant bios, stories, images, photos, buttons, badges, fact sheets, matte articles, and new resources for partners, public health professionals, faith-based organizations, health care providers, and so much more!
