Wednesday, Mar. 20, 2019 is Kick Butts Day, and, as lung health experts, respiratory therapists are uniquely positioned to help patients do just that. According to the Kick Butts Day website, the day is an opportunity to empower youth to stand out and speak up against tobacco use at events across the entire U.S.
What can I do?
Celebrate Kick Butts Day by organizing an event or activity for youth in your community to help raise awareness about the campaign. Once you have your plan, register your Kick Butts Day event online and then promote it.
If March 20 doesn’t work with your schedule, you are encouraged to hold a Kick Butts Day event at any time throughout the year. Check out the campaign’s activities database for ideas.
The AARC has compiled great tools and resources, along with courses, to help you build your skills and knowledge on tobacco cessation.
