Coalition Priorities

During 2019, the Nevada Tobacco Prevention Coalition will pursue the following strategic objectives:

  • Promote the reduction of tobacco use and initiation among youth and young adults through advance policy by focusing on legislation and policy changes.
  • Reduce exposure to secondhand smoke and electronic smoking device emissions by supporting modernization and strengthening of the NCIAA and promote the expansion of tobacco-free workplaces and outdoor public spaces in Nevada.
  • Promote quitting of tobacco use among adults by expanding access to cessation services and developing/distributing an NTPC position on e-cigarettes/vaping and harm reduction.
