In an effort to reduce tobacco use in Franklin County, we connect tobacco prevention and quit partners with schools and community organizations. Together we work to address access to tobacco products, establish tobacco free worksites and campuses and reduce exposure to secondhand smoke. We are a resource for information on tobacco- and smoke-free initiatives, tobacco surveillance and research and youth prevention programming. We provide schools, health care providers and community coalitions with resources to support quitting smoking. We also support WIC participants with opportunities to quit smoking.
We provide support and assistance to coalitions, municipalities, worksites and campuses as they develop tobacco-free policies and ordinances. We also address the impact of tobacco advertising in our community.
We work with the Franklin Grand Isle Tobacco Prevention Coalition.
