CDC Celebrates Ten Years of Tips


Mega Doctor NEWS

Cigarette smoking remains the single largest cause of preventable cause of disease and death in the United States. This year, CDC’s Tips from Former Smokers® (Tips®) campaign marks 10 years of building public awareness of the health damage caused by smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke. Tips is the nation’s first federally funded education campaign and has helped more than 1 million U.S. adults to quit smoking and inspired millions more to try to quit. 

The campaign features compelling stories from people about their smoking-related disabilities and diseases, such as cancer, and the toll these conditions have taken on them and their loved ones. New 2021 Tips campaign ads will air on national and cable television, online, and streaming radio. In addition to the new ads, CDC is also releasing a special supplement in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine focusing on the role of tobacco quitlines.
