Tobacco Use Prevention Program
The Nevada County Tobacco Prevention Program educates the community about the harmful effect of tobacco on individuals and the environment. The program also works to create local policies that protect individuals from second-hand smoke, reduce youth access to tobacco and minimize tobacco advertising. Each year the program engages youth from area schools in school and countywide tobacco prevention efforts.
