April 29 – Tobacco Prevention Advocacy Day at the Statehouse

Make plans to join Ohio Tobacco Control Partners for Tobacco Prevention Advocacy Day at the Ohio Statehouse on Wednesday, April 29, to meet with legislators and urge them to create strong tobacco prevention and cessation policies. Representatives from the AMCNO have already signed up for this event and we encourage additional members to consider signing up as well. Tobacco cessation and prevention is an important issue – this is an opportunity to meet with your legislators to discuss issues regarding tobacco-related health issues and discuss the importance of increasing the cigarette and other tobacco product tax.
