See The Signs – Save A Life

The New York State Association of Coroners and Medical Examiners (NYSACCME), in partnership with the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC), are proud to present a marketing campaign designed to bring awareness to the signs of opioid abuse.

This eye-opening campaign will run throughout New York State. 30 second vignettes will run on television in all NYS markets and a long form, 60 second message will be delivered digitally, as well.

A comprehensive website, seethesignssavealife.org was created to anchor this campaign and will be a resource for anyone who is affected by this fast growing epidemic.

NYSACCME felt that by showing the after effects of using these lethal substances with an ‘in-your-face’ approach, we might be able to save at least one life.
