Purpose of the Program:
The primary purpose of the Tobacco Prevention Program is to impact students with tobacco prevention lessons and messages. By providing professional development and continuing education opportunities, the program seeks to build capacity among educators and school nurses to teach tobacco and vaping prevention lessons. It is our hope that our participants will gain the knowledge and skills that they need to continue teaching tobacco and vaping prevention in their classrooms and schools each year.
About the Program:
The Tobacco Prevention Program has provided professional development opportunities to over 3,000 Florida educators and school nurses over the last decade. The program is sponsored by the Florida Department of Health and the Florida Department of Education and all courses are approved by both departments.
