Tobacco Free Hall County
Grand Island/Hall County, Nebraska, which was formed in the fall of 1994. Coalition members and affiliated agencies participate in tobacco education, prevention and other countywide activities and projects. Tobacco Free Hall County collaborates with various agencies, organizations, citizens and students engaging in a multitude of activities. Through these collaborative efforts, we are mindful of racial, social, economic and gender disparities in our education and prevention messages.
Affiliates of Tobacco Free Hall County envision a future free of tobacco.
The mission of Tobacco Free Hall County is to promote healthy lives free of tobacco in all its forms. Coalition members and affiliates know that all forms of tobacco products interfere with healthy lifestyles and harm both users and those near the users. They also know that tobacco use often leads to the use of other drugs. Visit the Tobacco Free Hall County Coalition online at www.tfhc.net
