|CCDPHP: Call will Feature National Tobacco Education Campaign|
State Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Directors & Coordinated Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Leads:
This is a quick reminder that CDC’s March call for Coordinated Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion will take place next week on Thursday, March 7th, from 3-4:30 p.m. EST.
As a reminder, we are shifting the focus of these calls somewhat. On each call, we’ll continue to spend some time on co-operative agreement management issues related to state Coordinated Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion awards, and will share state and CDC perspectives on the coming year’s work to institutionalize new norms and practices and document state experiences. However, we will also begin to dedicate a portion of each call to timely topics of general interest in chronic disease prevention and health promotion and timely information on major initiatives from Divisions throughout CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Please don’t hesitate to contact Branalyn Williams atBWilliams@cdc.gov to suggest topics of interest to states.
· The featured topic for March will be "Opportunities to Leverage CDC’s National Tobacco Education Campaign (Tips 2).” Presenters include Karla Sneegas, Program Services Branch Chief for CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health, and Robert Rodes, Team Lead for Research, Evaluation and Technical Assistance in OSH.
· The March call will also feature New Jersey’s Office of Tobacco Control (Janis Mayer) and Office of Cancer Control and Prevention Partnership (Susan Sanna-Bartelt)
· We do plan to discuss financial issues and processes for Year 3 of the Coordinated Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion awards as part of this call.
Please note that we’ll use "Live Meeting” for this call, in order to facilitate participants’ ability to view slides from CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health. Instructions are included below. Please note that the call-in phone number provided is different from the call-in # normally used for this call.
Coordinated Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion All-Program Call
March 7, 2013, 3:00-4:30 p.m. EST
Roll Call (3:00—3:05 p.m.)
Opportunities to Leverage CDC’s National Tobacco Education Campaign (Tips 2) (3:05-3:25 p.m. with Q and A 3:25-3:35 p.m.)
Presenters: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office of Smoking and Health (OSH) - Karla Sneegas, Program Services Branch Chief and Robert Rodes, Team Lead - Research, Evaluation and Technical Assistance
Description: In March 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched a groundbreaking media campaign called Tips From Former Smokers (Tips) that featured a variety of people who suffered from tobacco-related diseases and continue to live with the effects, such as stomas, paralysis from stroke, lung removal, heart attack, limb amputations, and asthma. CDC is building on the success of the Tips campaign by launching a new round of advertisements in April 2013 to continue to raise awareness of the human suffering caused by smoking and encourage smokers to quit. Tips 2 will expand on the first campaign and feature additional health conditions (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD], asthma in adults, smoking-related complications in a person with diabetes) that were not included in the first Tipscampaign. Join us to learn more about this latest effort and how it can help to meet your state’s goals.
· Provide an overview of the Tips 2 campaign
· Identify specific opportunities for participants to leverage the campaign
· Brief participants on the "Talk with your Doctor” initiative that is part of the campaign
