Partnership for a Tobacco Free Pasco
Tentative Meeting Schedule
Check out the latest newsletter here: Spring Newsletter 2012
The Partnership for a Tobacco Free Pasco (PTFP) brings together youth and adults with their ideas and resources to prevent, reduce and/or eliminate tobacco use and exposure to second hand smoke in Pasco County. We have set lofty goals to eliminate flavored tobacco from Pasco County and to eliminate second hand smoke in cars as well as promote tobacco cessation especially among disparate populations. These are difficult yet meaningful goals for our coalition and we need everyone to help achieve them. We meet quarterly and have active committees. If you are interested in joining our effort please let us know.
Students and adults are welcome. Most communication will be emails and conference calls and only the occasional face-to-face meeting.
