Tobacco Use Prevention and Smoking Cessation Programs

We are committed to helping children never smoke. We provide the No Tobacco Challenge - a one-day classroom discussion campaign that includes materials for presentation to students about the dangers associated with tobacco use. Students have the opportunity to accept the No Tobacco Challenge and pledge to be tobacco free.

The Lung/Thoracic Oncology Clinic is also available for individual classroom presentations on the danger of tobacco use.
