DOH-Volusia - Tobacco Free Volusia County Partnership to Meet July 23
July 16, 2018
Daytona Beach, Fla. - The Tobacco Free Volusia County Partnership will meet at 3 p.m., Monday, July 23, to discuss how agencies can implement the Tobacco Referral System and link clients to no-cost help to combat nicotine dependence.
The meeting will be held at the Department of Health in Volusia County, 1845 Holsonback Drive, room 516C, Daytona Beach and will be available by conference call.
Survey data from 2016 indicate that one in five adults in Volusia County were smokers, and 65 percent of them had tried to quit at least once in the previous year. Tobacco Free Florida combines nicotine replacement therapy with one of three counseling options. This unique program can be a direct service for your clients.
The Partnership is a county-wide, locally organized group committed to saving lives and improving the overall health and wellbeing of residents and visitors by reducing and/or eliminating the use of tobacco products. The Partnership is organized to advocate on the local, state and national level for prevention of the initiation of tobacco use among youth, protection from secondhand smoke, and promotion of tobacco cessation.
The public is encouraged to participate. To access the meeting via conference call (audio only), dial 1-888-670-3525, passcode 917 914 7160.
