Tobacco Free PartnershipThe Tobacco Control Program based in Tallahassee (founded after the State's tobacco lawsuit) is administered locally in Palm Beach County at the local Health Dept in the Health Education and Promotion Division.

  • Changing Attitudes About Tobacco

  • Increasing Youth Empowerment Through Community Involvement

  • Reducing Accessibility and Availability of Tobacco to Youth

  • Reducing Youth Exposure to Environmental Tobacco Smoke

  • Reducing The Prevalence of Tobacco Use Among High Risk Youth Populations
