The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office on Smoking and Health is recruiting candidates to be considered for an upcoming national education campaign. Similar to previous campaigns which are now running on TV, real people who have had life-changing, smoking-related health problems will be featured. Selected participants will receive $2,500 plus travel expenses.
The CDC is seeking ex-smokers from all backgrounds, ages 40-65, who have macular degeneration, a disease of the retina that has been linked to tobacco smoking. All applicants must be tobacco-free for at least 6 months.
Participating individuals should be comfortable sharing their story publicly and be able to articulate how their smoking-related condition has changed their lives. The association between smoking and their condition must be clear, and candidates’ physicians will be contacted to verify that smoking was a contributor.
