In collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Greg Puckett (Executive Director of Community Connections, Inc., in West Virginia) and Scott Hagan, aka The Barn Artist – among others – GHEA participated in the

unveiling of the “Rebecca Barn”, the first in the nation to feature a Tips from Former Smokers campaign personality. In the style of a bygone era of promotion, the barn — the 12th in which Community Connections and other coalitions located throughout the Mountain State have been involved — has a simple message from the CDC’s TIPS From Former Smokers campaign personality “Rebecca:” “Quitting isn’t about what you give up. It’s about what you get back.”

In addition, to add even more lasting effect, all individuals in attendance signed the door of the barn, illustrating their commitment to the cause and future endeavors.
