Anti-Tobacco Program

TCDC collaborates with the Arizona Department of Health Services/Bureau of Tobacco and Chronic Disease. The goal of the program is to identify and eliminate tobacco related disparities in the African-American community. Specifically, TCDC has initiatives aimed at: (1) educating youth on the addictive nature of tobacco, (2) establishing a tobacco free policy on church campuses, and (3) building capacity in community organizations to promote quitting. Personalized ongoing professional support is offered to all tobacco users looking for help with quitting through the Arizona Smokers Helpline, called ASHLine: 1-800-55-66-222.
