How to use this manual
This manual was designed to assist tobacco control advocates and physicians in preparing and presenting talks about secondhand smoke and clean indoor air to a variety of audiences, including community groups, business groups, public officials, media representatives and professional organizations.
The manual is organized to make designing presentations as easy as possible.
On the even numbered pages are visuals that can be made into slides, overheads, or handouts.
On the odd numbered pages are speaking points related to the corresponding visual. These speaking points amplify on the information contained in the visual, and we also include references where additional information on these topics may be found. If you wish to develop fact sheets on a given topic, you will find the speaking points and references a valuable resource.
Though we have sought to make this manual as user friendly as possible, it is important to emphasize that it is not designed as a “canned” presentation. Every talk should be tailored to the specific audience. Feel free to pick and choose from among the resources we offer and also add your own, in order to make your presentations fit the needs of the occasion.
