Tobacco Prevention & Education Program (TPEP)
TPEP’s role is to educate and create awareness of the harmful effects of commercial tobacco products.
We identify the different types of commercial tobacco products and devices that are used to deliver nicotine and other harmful additives.
We discuss traditional tobacco and how it is used for ceremonial, spiritual, and cultural purposes.
We work on policy implementation to improve and promote health and wellness throughout the community.
TPEP makes ongoing trips to the school throughout the school year and is involved in many events and activities during summer to engage our youth about prevention and education. TPEP provides and promotes resources for tobacco cessation including some-free phone apps, build your own quit plan, NRT’s, social media page, and quit kits for those who are interested.
