Tri-County H.D. Educates Youth about the Effects of Tobacco

Four youth groups from within the Tri-County Health Department service area of Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas Counties, including youth from Englewood have helped write, produce and star in a series of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) that educate residents about the harmful effects of tobacco on the community.

The youth groups were given the task of creating PSAs on unique areas of focus: tobacco in parks and outdoor spaces, electronic smoking devices (such as e-cigarettes) and cheap and sweetly flavored tobacco products that appeal to youth.
