SEPA Tobacco-Free Coalition

 

Mission:  Improve the health and wellbeing of people who live, work, and play in Southeastern PA by reducing the burden of tobacco and nicotine use.


Multiple coordinated public health approaches are needed to create lasting change to the landscape of tobacco control issues including prevention, treatment, policy change, and enforcement of current laws.  To facilitate this work, the (insert name) coalition provides an opportunity for collaboration, education, and training among a diverse group of public health and healthcare professionals, non-profits, educational institutions, and local government officials who are dedicated to creating a healthier Southeastern Pa.
