Apunipima Cape York Health Council’s Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) staff will take part in Mossman’s NAIDOC Day Street Parade and Family Fun Day on Friday 14 July.
Mossman Gorge Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) Officer Jessie Dau said she and colleague Clara Saleh will be raising awareness about the harms of smoking and promoting a local Don’t Make Smokes Your Story campaign.
They will also be handing out information bags, wristbands, campaign USBs, t-shirts and information on how to quit smoking.
Jessie, who works from Apunipima’s Mossman Gorge Primary Health Care Centre, engages with community members about the benefits of quitting smoking and supports people through their quitting journey.
She invites smokers who are interested in quitting to come and have a yarn with her – there are lots of ways to make the quitting process easier.
To catch up with Jessie, just drop into Mossman Gorge Primary Health Care Centre on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays between 8:30 am – 4:30 pm or ring 07 4037 4380 to make an appointment.
