The Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living Celebrates World No Tobacco Day with No Tobacco Shuffle Video
The Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living created a No Tobacco Shuffle song and video, with updated lyrics as a play on the Cupid Shuffle, to celebrate World No Tobacco Day on Monday, May 31. World No Tobacco Day is a yearly celebration that informs the public on the dangers of using tobacco, the business practices of tobacco companies, what the World Health Organization is doing to fight the tobacco epidemic, and what people around the world can do to claim their right to health and healthy living and to protect future generations.
Participating partners include the Louisiana Public Health Institute, Louisiana Cancer Research Center, Healthy St. Landry, Central Louisiana Healthy Communities Coalition, Well-Ahead, East Jefferson Hospital (LCMC), Girlie Girls Mentoring Program, and Northeast Delta Human Services Authority! Local musicians, including DJ Cupid, the creator of the Cupid Shuffle, DC Sills, and the Soul Revival Band also make an appearance in the video.
Currently, there are 30 smoke-free ordinances in place throughout Louisiana, protecting more than 1.4 million Louisianans from secondhand smoke. If residents are interested in more information about how to introduce a smoke-free ordinance in their jurisdiction, they can email HealthierAirForAll@lphi.org. Residents interested in quitting smoking can find resources to help them on their quit journey at QuitWithUsLa.org or by calling 1-800-Quit-Now.
