CDC National Media Campaign – “Tips From Former Smokers”
(March 15, 2012)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is fighting fire with fire to help reduce smoking rates across the country. On March 15th, the CDC launched a new, hard-hitting media campaign to combat the tobacco industry’s $1 million an hour marketing budget. These new ads hope to convince people to quit smoking, or better yet, never start.

RTs from the Minnesota society for respiratory care are at capital lobbying for RTs to be a part of the medical transport teams.

 The Ms Wheelchair Minnesota Pageant is April 2nd at the Minneapolis Marriot . There is a raffle to help pay for her expenses to attend the national competition. Tickets are $50.00 each and they are only selling 100 tickets.

If you’d like to purchase a ticket for the Les Kouba original email Laurie at laurie@handimedical.com 

Les Kouba lived from February 3, 1917 to September 13, 1998.

Some of his distinguished highlights include his wildlife art, modernizing the Coca-Cola logo, 2 federal stamps and 2 national waterfowl stamps to name a few.

However, where Les Kouba stands out the most was his legendary commitment to “giving back”. He contributed millions of dollars of original art and prints to non-profit organizations including: Boy Scouts, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and a host of other charities.

Les C. Kouba’s deep understanding of wildlife stemmed from his lifelong experience studying wildlife in its natural habitat. This makes him one of the world’s foremost painters of wildlife. His authentic and believable images are based on this firsthand knowledge. A unique part of many Leslie Kouba’s prints is his use of thirteen elements such as thirteen pheasants in an image. Collectors have come to know this about his works and enjoy the search for them as Kouba may have camouflaged them into the background.
