WORLD NO TOBACCO DAY 2019
World No Tobacco Day
Every year, on May 31, the World Health Organization (WHO) and global partners such as the Chippewa County Communities That Care (CTC) Coalition celebrate World No Tobacco Day (WNTD). The annual campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness on the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco use and second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco in any form.
The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2019 is on "tobacco and lung health." The campaign will increase awareness on:
- the negative impact that tobacco has on people’s lung health, from cancer to chronic respiratory disease,
- the fundamental role lungs play for the health and well-being of all people.
The campaign also serves as a call to action, advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption and engaging stakeholders across multiple sectors in the fight for tobacco control.
The Chippewa County CTC Coalition is supporting this movement by embarking on a banner campaign, and we hope you participate in the following ways:
1: Choose a photo you enjoy that takes your breath away.
2: Up load your photo to Facebook as your profile picture with the photo frame at WHO No Tobacco Day 2019 Social Media Campaign.
3: When posting the picture write a caption that explains why it takes your breath away and why it should never be tobacco. Use the #NoTobacco.
4: Tag @WHO and at least 3 of your friends, encouraging them to join the online conversation.
If you know of someone who wants to quit smoking call 1-800-Quit Now.
