Reducing Cancer Rates in Maine through Tobacco Education and Policy Development

About This Grant:

Maine Public Health Association and our tobacco policy committee partners plan to implement a comprehensive tobacco education and advocacy plan. Prevention data demonstrates that the most effective plans to prevent tobacco use are comprehensive and complete in nature and scope. Our plan does just that- we propose to use MCF funds to allow us to capitalize on our coalition expertise, networks, in-kind resources and partnerships across the state. This will maximize our efforts to influence key decision makers/legislators, the general public and the business community in truly understanding the devastating health and financials impacts of tobacco use in Maine and motivate them to implement change
