AHI’s Clear the Air in the Southern Adirondacks (CASA) program has launched a new website and social media pages to promote its mission of building healthier communities through tobacco-free living.
The new website, https://ahihealth.org/casa/, features information on the program’s four key initiatives – retail environment/point-of-sale, tobacco-free outdoors, tobacco-free multi-unit housing, and smoke-free movies. In addition, the site spotlights Reality Check, a free youth-led, adult-supported CASA initiative involving those 13-18 years of age who lead positive change in their communities through the education of business leaders, legislators, and other community representatives and entities. The site also includes resources, news and updates, a list of upcoming events, and more.
Coinciding with the website launch, the program has also unveiled a new Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/casasww/, Instagram page, https://www.instagram.com/casarc1/, and YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCV_JG8FYF0drNz_ycOMlAEQ?. The program will use these pages as vehicles to help promote their mission and encourage community participation in its activities.
CASA is an advancing tobacco-free communities partnership grant funded by the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Tobacco Control and serves Warren, Washington, and Saratoga counties. The program’s goal is to reduce the impact of retail tobacco marketing on youth and adults, establish a tobacco-free community norm through tobacco-free outdoor air and housing policies, and decrease tobacco imagery in youth-related movies and the tobacco industry’s presence on social media.
