Tobacco Free in the Panhandle has a goal to reduce the human burden of premature illness, death and disability caused by tobacco products. To accomplish this goal, we will work in the general strategy areas of community-based public awareness, educational materials development, voluntary and other policy development, assessment and evaluation and paid media campaigns.
Tobacco Free in the Panhandle is a part of the Panhandle Prevention Coalition. The coalition meets at Prairie Winds Community Center in Bridgeport. Click here to see when the next meeting is and to RSVP. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Panhandle Prevention Coalition is comprised of local community coalitions and a regional coalition united together by a passion and dedication to healthy and safe people across the lifespan. Our efforts include, but are not limited to, alcohol and tobacco prevention. Community partners include concerned parents, health care workers, law enforcement, social service professionals, community leaders, elected officials, educators, business owners, volunteers and citizens both locally and statewide who seek safe communities for our children and families to live and grow.
