I’m pleased to have been asked to participate in the launch of the “I Quit” installation at the Franklin Institute. This program is a partnership between Body Worlds and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Tobacco Control Project (SEPA TCP).
Body Worlds, for those unfamiliar with it, is a science exhibit which gives the public an amazing view of human anatomy by a process called Plastination. It has been seen by over 29 million people around the world.
The displays are so stunning that many visitors report that the exhibit gave them a greater awareness of the health implications of bad habits like smoking or overeating.
From the media alert released for the launch:
Gunther von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS 2 and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Tobacco Control Project (SEPA TCP) Encourage Smokers To Say “I Quit!” At The Franklin Institute
Hypnotist Helps to Launch Initiative to Inspire New Year’s Resolutions
Gunther von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS 2 and SEPTA TCP invite all media to attend the unveiling of the I Quit! installation which will join the plastinated specimens of healthy and diseased lungs in the exhibit hall at The Franklin Institute.
The I Quit! display features an inspirational multimedia smoking cessation program that includes the memorable PSA by the late Yul Brynner, pledge cards for those intending to give up smoking, and a repository where visitors can leave their last pack of cigarettes.
Exclusively for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s leading 5-PATH® certified hypnotist, Steve Roh, will be on hand to give a brief demonstration and explain hypnosis for smoking cessation to visitors.
