Tuesday, November 11, 2014
The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout annually on the third Thursday in November.
Smokers across America are encouraged to give up smoking or make a plan to quit on this day.
HOPE Coalition (Healthy Options for Prevention and Education) is a youth-adult partnership coalition created to reduce youth violence, substance use and promote adolescent mental health in the City of Worcester. HOPE is also a chapter of The 84, the Massachusetts youth movement working to fight big tobacco.
The 84 is a program of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, developed and managed in partnership with Health Resources in Action.
