We are recruiting additional candidates to be considered for the 2015 Tips campaign. We would like to request your assistance to help identify individuals who fit our recruitment criteria (listed below) and who may be interested in participating in the Tips campaign. You can be assured that we will treat all applicants with dignity, respect, and sensitivity.

We are seeking people from all backgrounds, and are particularly looking for candidates who are of Asian descent. All applicants must be tobacco-free for at least 6 months.

We are looking for ex-smokers who:

• Have or have had colorectal cancer that was linked to cigarette smoking (ages 30–65).

• Have or have had macular degeneration that was linked to cigarette smoking (ages 40–65).

• Used cigars with cigarettes or used cigarillos or little cigars with or without cigarettes, thinking cigars, cigarillos and little cigars were healthier than cigarettes and developed a serious health condition while smoking (ages 20-60).

• Used e-cigarettes or smokeless tobacco for at least a year while continuing to smoke some cigarettes; and

• Thought using e-cigarettes or smokeless tobacco to cut back on some cigarettes would be good for your health; and

• Despite cutting back, you were later diagnosed with a serious health condition.

All individuals should be comfortable sharing their story publicly and be able to articulate how their smoking-related condition has changed their life. The association between smoking and their condition must be clear, and candidates' physicians will be contacted to verify that smoking contributed to the condition.

We are asking you to help distribute the 2015 Tips Campaign recruitment flyer (also attached). Please feel free to share it with anyone who might be willing to help CDC recruit for this campaign. The flyer can be posted in public areas or shared with anyone who may know people who fit the criteria above.

If you have questions, please send them to our CDC representative, Crystal Bruce, Please put "Recruitment Question” in the subject line. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
