No smoking!

The good news is that tobacco prevention programs work! Tri-County Health Department works with public and private partners in our three counties to work on:
• Assisting college campuses in becoming tobacco-free
• Strengthening tobacco-free policies in our school districts
• Working with youth coalitions to decrease tobacco use in our environment.
• Supporting multi-unit housing properties in becoming smoke-free
• Increasing cessation
