Talk With Your Doctor
The American Academy of Pediatrics, along with the American Medical Association, American Academy of Family Physicians, American College of Physicians, and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the “Talk With Your Doctor” initiative. This initiative is part of CDC's national media campaign titled Tips From Former Smokers.
The “Talk With Your Doctor” initiative will encourage physicians and other health care providers to use the campaign as a way to discuss cessation in the practice setting. Tips campaign TV ads running during this week will feature a tagline that reads "You Can Quit. Talk With Your Doctor for Help."
On this page are resources specific to pediatric practice settings; for more general resources, including a looped waiting room video, fact sheets,and a physician pocket card, please visit the CDC Tips From Former Smokers Health Care Providers Web site. View photos from the launch of the campaign.
