NCTOH Organizers Looking For Video Shoot Participants

NCTOH Organizers Need You!

Thursday, January 26, 2012
Between 9:00am – 1:30pm & 5:00pm – 7:00pm

What is the NCTOH? The National Conference on Tobacco or Health (NCTOH) convenes national and regional public health leaders to strategize, learn about and implement best practices and policies to reduce tobacco use—the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the United States.

Why do we need your help? NCTOH organizers are currently in the process of developing video clips to help promote attendance for the 2012 event, and would like to capture a diverse group of folks’ perspectives on the conference, tobacco control, and Kansas City. The clips will be posted on the NCTOH Website and other social media platforms! Organizers are looking for a variety of people to help, including:

  • Public Health Specialists
  • Doctors and Nurses
  • Ex-Smokers
  • Past Conference Participants
  • First Time Conference Participants
  • Tobacco Control Advocates
  • Health Professors and Students
  • Kansas City Natives
  • Youth Groups and Youth Advocates
  • Tobacco Control Program Staff

Specifically, NCTOH organizers will be in Kansas City, MO on Thursday, January 26th. They will be shooting video between 9:00am – 1:30pm and again from 5:00pm – 7:00pm. If you’d like to participate, and possibly be in one of the final movie clips, then mark your calendars for this date!

What exactly will happen? Your total time commitment will be approximately 30 minutes on-site. Once you arrive at the shoot, NCTOH staff members will prep you for the camera, and then ask you a few general questions, depending on your background and experience. Some examples include:

  • Describe your favorite NCTOH memory.
  • What do you love about the NCTOH?
  • Why are you looking forward to attending the 2012 NCTOH?
  • Give the top reason you’re an advocate for tobacco control.
  • What’s your favorite place to eat in the Power and Light District?
  • Why is Kansas City a great place to visit?
  • What are the “must dos” when traveling to Kansas City?

Yes, I want to help! What do I do now? Send an email to stating that you’re willing to participate in the NCTOH video shoot on January 26th and which shift (AM or PM) you’d prefer. We’ll reply with exact information on where the shoot will be (Kansas City metro area), what time you need to be there and a listing of questions to prepare for.
