CDC Looking for Ex-Smokers for New TIPS campaign

04/10/2014

CDC is looking for real people to appear in new Tips From Former Smokers ads about the health effects of smoking cigarettes.

Participants selected will be paid $2,500 + travel expenses.

We are looking for ex-smokers of any ethnic background who have been diagnosed with these diseases while smoking:

  • Colorectal cancer (age 30–65)
  • Macular degeneration (age 40–65)

We are also looking for ex-smokers who:

Used cigars with cigarettes, or used cigarillos or little cigars alone or with cigarettes because you thought cigars, cigarillos, or little cigars were healthier, and were diagnosed with a serious health condition while smoking (age 20-60).

For at least a year, used e-cigarettes or smokeless tobacco while continuing to smoke some cigarettes (age 20-60); and
Thought using e-cigarettes or smokeless tobacco to cut back on some cigarettes would be good for your health; and
Despite cutting back, you were later diagnosed with a serious health condition.

We are particularly encouraging qualified English speakers of Asian descent to consider applying to be a part of the ad campaign.

In order to qualify for this project, you must be:

  • An ex-smoker who quit all tobacco products at least six months ago.
  • Able to travel for filming.
  • Willing to submit to a background check.
  • Willing to have your doctor sign a legal statement verifying that smoking caused or contributed to your health condition.
  • Please respond ASAP but no later than May 30, 2014:
