Drug and Tobacco Free Starke County and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are looking for former smokers to take part in a national tobacco educational campaign. The Tips from Former Smokers (Tips) campaign will feature real people who have had life-changing, smoking-related health issues.
They are looking for former smokers ages 30 to 60 who have or have had either anxiety or depression and a serious health condition due to smoking. They are also seeking current or former military members who have been diagnosed with a serious health condition due to smoking and are between the ages of 30 and 60. People between the ages of 25 and 60 who have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis while smoking and people between the ages of 20 and 60 who have used a combination of electronic and tobacco cigarettes and experienced a severe health problem are also needed for the campaign. So are people between the ages of 18 and 54 who were diagnosed with a serious health condition caused by smoking and have a compelling positive story about the benefits experienced since quitting.
