Our Mission

Our collective goal is to raise awareness of the devastating impact of tobacco use.  We strive to maintain a local infrastructure through activities that include training adult and youth advocates, empowering coalition and community members, developing relationships with key stakeholders and decision-makers in our communities, and building diverse coalitions.  We have made a lot of progress; yet more work needs to be done.  It will take every organization, business, school, healthcare provider and citizen to help create a healthier Lake County that is not crippled by the tobacco epidemic.
