Not Another 50

Not Another 50

So for my first post I have decided to do it over the most recent achievement in the world of tobacco prevention and the last event that I have worked on.

Last summer I went to Washington D.C. to work with The Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids and Legacy for Health Foundation on an activism event in front of the white house that highlighted the last 50 years since the first Surgeon Generals Report on tobacco use. We talked to people about how the first report linked smoking to cancer and how tobacco prevention has evolved over the last 50 years.

On the website you can see when an event, related to tobacco prevention, happened on a timeline and understand more about what the industry has done to evolve as well from all of the changes over the years. The website also has a link to how someone can get involved if they want to share this campaign.
