The Clear the Air in the Southern Adirondacks (CASA) team of Kelly Owns, Merry Rudinger, and Joey Boswell was recently interviewed by Amanda Blanton for the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce‘s podcast, I’m In With the ARCC.
Among other topics, the team discussed the program’s four main objectives – community engagement, community education, policy change, and youth involvement. They also asked podcast listeners to help them in their efforts to establish smoke-free communities by submitting photos of prominently-displayed tobacco advertisements found in the community. The team will compile the photos to use as a visual illustration of how Big Tobacco uses enticing and deceptive marketing tactics to lure prospective tobacco and vape users. If you would like to submit a photo, and receive a goody bag in return, please send it in an email to [email protected].
CASA, a program of Adirondack Health Institute, 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.
