Community Corner….”Matters of the Heart” Campaign

“Matters of the Heart” Campaign Continuing with Your Help
DID YOU KNOW? Each year, more than 72,000 African Americans are diagnosed with a tobacco-related cancer. Tragically, more than 39,000 die from those diseases.
“Matters of the Heart” – a tobacco cessation campaign from Indiana Black Expo – shares the stories of Indiana African American families whose lives were devastated by tobacco use.
This heartfelt campaign is again being launched statewide and we invite you to share this important health message with your family, friends, co-workers and everyone in your community. 
 
To learn more, I invite you to visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/IBETobaccoPrevention/ to check out our latest posts and new videos. What’s more, you are welcome to share these messages and videos on your social media pages.
If you or someone you love is trying to quit using tobacco, go to www.indianablackexpo.com/tobacco-prevention. Or, call the Indiana Tobacco Quitline today at 1-800-QUIT-NOW.  The Quitline is a free service for anyone in Indiana who is 18 years and older. A trained “quit coach” will work with tobacco users on a strategy to break the addiction with tobacco.
We’ll soon be visiting Anderson, Kokomo and South Bend to share the Matters of the Heart stories with the community. The purpose of these meetings is to generate awareness and recognition – at a local level within each of these communities – as part of a state-funded grant initiative for the “Matters of the Heart” campaign.
In doing so, we want to encourage everyone to understand the devastating impact caused by tobacco use.
