UNH Kicks Butts
UNH Kicks Butts
Kick Butts National Day of Activism at UNH - March 31, 2015
This campaign is a national day of activism that began in 1996.
Over 1,000 events in schools and communities across the United States and around the world are expected to participate in this year's campaign.
Kick Butts' goal is to empower youth and young adults to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco by:
- Raising awareness of the problem of tobacco use in state and local communities;
- Encouraging youth and young adults to reject the tobacco industry's deceptive marketing and stay tobacco-free;
- Urging elected officials to take action to protect communities from tobacco.
Contribute to the UNH Tobacco Memorial Wall
In recognition of National Kick Butts Day, UNH Health Services is sponsoring its first annual online UNH Tobacco Memorial Wall dedicated to the memories of those who have died due to tobacco use. Here we memorialize, remember and pay tribute to friends and loved ones whose lives were cut short by their chemical dependency upon smoking nicotine.
May your remembrances inspire other to never start, current nicotine users to quit, those struggling to quit stay the course, and ex-users to savor every day of their lives without nicotine.
The UNH Tobacco Memorial Wall will accept photos, videos, personal notes and photographed artwork submitted by UNH students, faculty and staff.
Anyone in the UNH community may contribute to the wall. Please allow up to 5 days for your contribution to be included on the UNH Memorial Wall, which is online on Pinterest. If you have questions about your submission, please contact Melissa Garvey at (603) 862-3823 or by firstname.lastname@example.org.

UNH Smoking Cessation Services
You will be most successful in kicking your tobacco habit when you have support and utilize multiple measures rather than using only one. For example, some people use a nicotine replacement product along with meditation and counseling. The good news is, we offer many services to help you kick your tobacco habit to the curb...for good!
