National Healthy Lung Month Campaign "You Have Been Targeted".

During the month of October we recognize National Healthy Lung Month to increase awareness and education around this very important topic. To prioritize the importance of protecting our lungs against general neglect, bronchitis, mold, air pollution, and smoking. The bottom line is If we take care of our lungs, our lungs will take care of us.

The Northeast Ohio Black Health Coalition in collaboration with The Center for Black Health & Equity will release a series of billboards throughout Northeast Ohio aimed at addressing the impact of smoking on the African American community. The campaign will feature Grammy and Billboard Award Winning Singer and Writer Joe Little III with Entertainers Speak Out, National Council of Negro Women Inc. Chapter Presidents for the Cuyahoga and Lorain County Sections, Cuyahoga County Poet Laureate Honey Bell Bey, medical professionals, prominent clergy and community advocates.

"You Have Been Targeted" speaks to the need for the African American community to understand the risks of smoking particularly mentholated products and the industries deliberate targeting of African American consumers. This campaign seeks to enlighten and engage the community of their risks and help them with the tools they need to Choose Life.
