Encounter Culture: The Great American Smokeout November 2013
The Great American Smokeout
The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November each year. The first one was held in San Francisco’s Union Square on November 16, 1977. As you might know, the event encourages Americans to stop smoking tobacco, even if it’s only for 24 hours, with the hope that they will decide to stop for good.
This is a great opportunity to discuss with your international employees key efforts that might be focused in their home countries as well as bring awareness to the importance of healthy living. World No Tobacco Day is observed around the world every year on May 31st.
