Best Practice Brief – Refusing to Quit on Watertown {POSTPONED}

November 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

nicotine best practice brief

Gone are the days of ash trays and cigarettes in local restaurants and offices. Unfortunately, the fruity smell of nicotine vapors and smashed remains of electronic vaping devices in parking lots have become the alternative. Easy to conceal due to the pleasant smell and clever designs, a growing number of young adults and adolescents are becoming addicted to nicotine. The Northeast Prevention Resource Center is partnering with health care professionals and community members in Watertown, SD, to educate on the dangers of nicotine and promote resources to successfully overcome nicotine addiction.

  1. Highlight community partnerships for reducing nicotine access and exposure.
  2. Describe best practices and ongoing challenges increasing awareness.
  3. Encourage communities to request partnership grant funding.
