The Network for LGBT Health Equity CDC TIPS Campaign seeking HIV+ former smokers to share their stories *Please note: The TIPS campaign is seeking an HIV+ FORMER smoker…our apologies for forgetting to include this in the original post!
The TIPS from Former Smokers campaign is seeking the next round of real people to appear in their ads! And, they’re specifically seeking HIV+ men whose health has been made worse by smoking. This is an extremely important inclusion in the campaign because of the high number of HIV+ people who smoke, and may not know the health impact that it is having on their already potentially compromised immune systems!
The last round of TIPS included an ad featuring Ellie, a lesbian, who got asthma from second-hand smoke at her place of work. It is so great that the CDC is including LGBT and HIV+ communities in this national campaign!
Are you an HIV+male, a smoker, and interested in being in this campaign? If so, email CDCTips@gmail.com or call (855) 332-7277 and if you’re chosen to share your story you will be paid $2,500 (+ travel expenses) Know someone? Pass this information along!
