Welcome to 2023, we hope you had a wonderful and restful end of 2022 and that you are safe and well after the stormy start to our year!
Our Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE) team wish you a happy and healthy New Year, and invite you to help us achieve our goal: making 2023 the year of the Vape-Free Student.
Of course, vaping is not the only tobacco-related culprit, but it is the one we see used most among our youth. We know that the tobacco industry has used bright colors, candy flavors, and interesting technology to hook youth of this generation.
With the knowledge we have about these products and the gains we have made in preventing their access locally and statewide, we are looking to you to help us make 2023 the year of the Vape-Free student.
Please take the time to read our monthly updates, and distribute this information to your students, parents, and family, too, as it is relevant. We are here to be a resource to you, so please reach out any time with your questions and requests.
If you have a student, child, or group of youth who could benefit from individual or group support, please reach out. The TUPE team is ready to meet students where they are at, and help them on their journey to live tobacco-free. Please distribute this shareable resource flyer widely.
