Smoking is one of the leading causes of heart disease and stroke. At least 70% of cigarette smokers see a clinician annually, [PDF-381K] and most want to quit.
The American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout—which takes place on November 17, 2016—is the perfect time to encourage people in your practice or community to quit tobacco. Throughout November and beyond, Million Hearts® will share tobacco cessation resources on the Million Hearts® social media channels to empower people to quit. We invite you to promote them on your social media channels as well.
Find shareable resources for patients and professionals on the Million Hearts® website, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office on Smoking and Health website, and other CDC websites, as well as resources from our partners.
Follow CDC Million Hearts® on Facebook and Twitter and share your favorite #GASO posts.
In recognition of the Great American Smokeout, share these sample social media messages on your channels to encourage people to quit smoking and using tobacco.
