Tobacco Prevention and Control
Grassroots advocacy/organizing and community-based initiatives in diverse communities
CMCH has implemented a number of community-based initiatives to prevent and control tobacco use in diverse communities in Seattle-King County. Initiatives include promoting cessation in worksites using a module based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Pathways to Freedom
guide and training health
ministry members and other interested
faith community members to deliver a
brief tobacco cessation intervention.
The Center for Multicultural Health offers an innovative approach to tobacco cessation through the Fight the Power of Tobacco Cessation Toolkit. The toolkit is designed to assist community based organizations, churches, work release facilities, community clinics and any group using community based approaches to supporting people who are ready to quit using tobacco. The goal of the tool kit is to provide community leaders, health ministries and non-profit providers with alternative strategies, resources and educational materials to conduct cessation services within their existing programs.
If you are interested in learning more about this program, please contact Janelle Okorogu at 206-461-6910, ext. 209 or email@example.com.
