Great American Smokeout – November 17, 2016
Project UNIFORM supports events to encourage tobacco-free lives. Providing tobacco cessation services and resources to support tobacco-free living is one way to show appreciation to active duty service members and Veterans for their service.
Who Project UNIFORM Provides Materials To
Project UNIFORM is able to support Great American Smokeout events hosted in California. These events or activities may be hosted by military installations, health care clinics, college campuses, community organizations and coalitions, and other agencies or groups seeking to provide tobacco prevention and cessation information to military community members.
What Project UNIFORM Offers
We are able to provide participating installations, colleges, organizations, and groups with free tobacco cessation quit kits, electronic media, and print resources.
Quit Kits contain items and information to support a person who uses tobacco in making a quit attempt. These materials encourage behavior change and participation in location tobacco-free activities.
Electronic media includes the placement of ads on Facebook to promote awareness of local and statewide (1-800-NO-BUTTS) tobacco cessation resources.
Print resources, including quit cards, post cards, posters, and flyers are also available. Military-specific resources can be requested when registering for the event. Additional educational materials can be ordered by submitting an Educational Materials form to CYAN. These materials are available year-round to promote cessation in local military communities.
Cessation resources are also available from the California Smokers’ Helpline. An assortment of cessation materials such as the 1-800-NO-BUTTS gold card, Helpline brochures, and fact sheets are available for order or download at www.nobutts-catalog.org.
Registration for the 2016 event is closed. Information about the 2017 Great American Smokeout event will be available in September 2017.
