Shisha No Thanks won the Business Campaign of the Year award in the Premier's Multicultural Communications Awards - more information click here.
Shisha No Thanks has been a Cancer Institute NSW-funded project on raising awareness of the harms of waterpipe use . The project was led by South Eastern Sydney Local Health District and involved community partners, four Health Districts and the Multicultural Health Communication Service. The South Eastern Sydney Research Collaboration Hub (SEaRCH) evaluated the project, which found a significantly higher proportion of Arabic-speaking young people reporting that they were aware of the harms of shisha smoking (pre: 45%, post: 68%).
The project team are organising a free Research to Practice Forum at 3pm-5pm AEST on Friday 28 May, featuring an impressive line-up of local and international speakers and is sure to be an interesting session. RSVP please click here.
