Tobacco Prevention Initiative - Health Education
The Tobacco Prevention Program is actively involved in community-level activities to make a sustainable impact on tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure. The program staff work to increase understanding of the problem of tobacco and the solutions proven to work, providing support and technical assistance for change. Whether it’s assisting a person who needs information about resources to quit, helping an organization with practices to reduce tobacco-related concerns, or partnering with a coalition to advocate for stronger local tobacco control laws, the commitment of the team is to reduce disease and death caused by tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure. For more information, please contact Donna Viverette at 303-275-7555 or email@example.com.
Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act - On July 1st, 2006, the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act went into effect. The Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act was passed to protect the public from involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke. As of June, 2011, more than 53 Colorado communities have implemented laws stronger than the State law. For information about what communities in Jefferson County are doing to further protect workers and the public from secondhand smoke exposure, click on the name of a community in the “Join a Coalition” box, above.

It also provides quit path options for people who are ready to quit and resources for those getting ready to quit. Users can find the resource that is right for them.
