Tobacco Grant Awarded to Community Health Education

The Community Health Education Department has been involved with the development and implementation of tobacco prevention and cessation programs for youth and adults.

These programs consist of multiple interventions involving families, schools and the community at large.

There are four essential components: building strong community-based partnerships; reducing exposure to environmental tobacco smoke; reducing youth initiation to tobacco; and promoting cessation services to adults and youth.

The Department recently applied for and received a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Health to fund these and new programs. The grant awarded was approximately $180,000.

Released: December 1, 2008
