​The rate of cigarette smoking among youth has dropped, however, chew, snus and e-cigarette use is increasing. We work with the South East Pennsylvania Tobacco-Free Coalition to educate and motivate kids to avoid these products and avoid addiction.

​”Great American Smoke-Out” is another opportunity to present awareness about potential harm from tobacco use. Initiated by the American Cancer Society, the 3rd Thursday of November has been a day of national promotion of quitting tobacco for more than 50 years.
