What We Do

The mission of the Nevada Tobacco Prevention Coalition is to improve the health of all Nevadans by reducing the burden of tobacco use and nicotine addiction. We believe that reduction in the use of tobacco and in the exposure to secondhand smoke and e-cigarette aerosol will create healthier lifestyles, longer lives, and a healthier environment for the people of Nevada.

The members of the Nevada Tobacco Prevention Coalition include public health professionals and advocates from non-profits, local and state health districts, medical associations, community coalitions, universities and other academic institutions, and volunteers.

As a coalition and individual members, we work to create healthier environments by educating about and advocating for policy change that protects all workers from secondhand smoke; that prevents youth and young adults from initiating tobacco and e-cigarette use; that taxes cigarettes and other tobacco products at levels that help to deter use; that encourages cessation among all tobacco users; and that helps to reduce disparities as they relate to tobacco use.
