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
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

Roll Call (3:00—3:05
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.)

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
