In the war against Big Tobacco, there are many people who fight daily to prevent kids from smoking and help smokers quit. A victory occurs every time a smoker quits and every time a kid chooses not to pick up a cigarette. These victories are so important, and they save lives. However, they often go uncelebrated – as do the people who helped make them happen.
That is why the American Lung Association and The C. Everett Koop Institute at Dartmouth present our annual Unsung Heroes’ Award: to celebrate the heroes that make a tobacco-free future possible. The next award recipient will be announced on June 24, 2016 at an Awards Dinner in Chicago, IL.
Please recognize your colleagues, friends and heroes by nominating them for the Unsung Heroes’ Award. Anyone can submit a nomination. Anyone working to end the tobacco epidemic in the United States is eligible and all qualified candidates will be considered for the award, including staff and volunteers of the American Lung Association and other organizations working on tobacco control and prevention.
