26 Benefits of Smoke-free Policies Reductions in exposure amongnonsmoking hospitality workersgeneral population of nonsmokersHealth improvements among nonsmoking hospitality workersReductions in sensory and respiratory symptomsImproved lung functionReductions in hospital heart attack admissions among the general publicIncreased cessation, reduced smoking rates among workersSmoke-free policies reduce secondhand smoke exposure among smokers and nonsmokers and lead to improvements in lung function. They also lead to substantial reductions in heart attack admissions immediately following implementation of a smoke-free policy.
27 There is Also a Good Business Case for Going Smoke-Free
28 Groups Disproportionately Exposed to Secondhand Smoke Children and adolescentsAfrican AmericansBlue-collar, service, and hospitality workersLow-income AmericansExamples of exposed populations include:Children, who are primarily exposed in homes or cars; orblue collar and service industry workers, since voluntary smoke-free policies tend to trend to favor white-collar office jobs.Employees who report working in a smoke-free workplace are:83% of white collar workers72% of food- service workers63% of blue collar workers(Based on 2008 State Law MMWR)

32 Florida Truth Campaign: Dramatic Impact on Youth Smoking Over 2 years, cigarette use plunged 40% among middle-school students and 18% among high-school students

34 CDC’s National Tobacco Education Campaign “Tips from Former Smokers” National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health PromotionOffice on Smoking and Health
35 The Office of Smoking and Health took an evidence based approach to ad development. First, we reviewed our experience running a pilot campaign in HHS Region 6 in the Spring of 2011 where we ran 3 hard-hitting TV ads for 12 weeks.After the 12 weeks, a significant increase in ad awareness was seen and for every dollar we spent, we earned two and a half dollars in free placement.We received very little negative feedback, from only a handful of individuals, and received strong, consistently positive and appreciative feedback from state and local health departments, including State Health Officers.At the same time the pilot campaign was running, we began developing new ads for the national campaign. With message platform testing.We found that messages that were clear, simple, believable and emotional were most well-received, and people responded very well to the “immediacy of health dangers” theme.Next, we developed three campaign concepts and tested them via in-person focus groups. Of the three, the "Tips" concept was strongly preferred by almost all participants, and was rated the most powerful of the campaign concepts.

Arkansas is reporting that their quitline volume increased from 442 calls (the week before the campaign launched) to 563, which was the highest number of calls they’ve ever had.
