We’re Thankful For Local Support

During this season of being thankful and showing appreciation, a big THANK YOU to all involved that work in tobacco prevention and preventing underage tobacco use in Marquette County.   Thank you to the dedicated coalition members of Five Counties for Tobacco Free Living and Healthy Communities Healthy Youth (HCHY) for their support. Thank you to the youth compliance team members and local law enforcement for working with the Wisconsin Wins (WI Wins) program, which is a science-based, state-level initiative, designed to decrease youth access to tobacco products through retailer education and compliance checks.  Lastly, a big thank you to the retailers that did not sell tobacco to youth!
