JCPH encourages families to learn more about some of the national tobacco prevention campaigns held in February and March 2014.

  • Great American Spit Out, February 21, 2014: On this day, chew tobacco users are asked to skip the dip and go just one day without tobacco. The day is just one component of Through with Chew Week. Chew tobacco users are also encouraged to watch The Sean Marsee Story, a powerful video of Sean’s brother telling the story of how Sean, a 19-year old track athlete, died from the effects of spit tobacco. 
  • March 19, 2014, Kick Butts Day: A national day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco. Teachers, parents, youth and health advocates are encouraged to help raise awareness of the toll tobacco takes on our communities, encourage youth to stay tobacco-free and urge strong action to protect kids from tobacco.
