Wisconsin Woman Featured in New Tips from Former Smokers Ads
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced the launch of another round of ads from the successful Tips from Former Smokers campaign.
The ads are scheduled to run July 7 - September 7. One of the new campaign ads features a Wisconsin woman named Amanda. During her ad, Amanda recounts how smoking during her pregnancy caused her to give birth to her daughter two months early. Her daughter was born at three pounds, and while otherwise healthy, still deals with asthma issues to this day.
