Tobacco Free Weld

The Weld County Tobacco Control Program is funded through a grant from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment as part of the Amendment 35 Tobacco Tax through the state Tobacco Education and Prevention Partnership (STEPP).  

In partnership with the Tobacco-Free Coalition of Weld County, the Weld County Tobacco Control Program works to reduce tobacco use through: 

  • Preventing initiation of tobacco use among young people.
  • Developing and identifying services to help people quit tobacco use (cessation).
  • Educating and protecting people from secondhand smoke.
  • Addressing inequities in tobacco use among diverse populations.

Protect Your Future Mural Unveiling Celebration
 

PACT MURAL PROJECT

Youth involved in PACT (Preventing Addiction Caused by Tobacco) youth coalition and local artist, Armando Silva, are working together to paint a mural in Downtown Greeley.  
PACT hopes the mural will remind the community to protect the future of Weld County youth against tobacco and secondhand smoke by creating smoke and vapor free areas.

Smoke and vapor free areas protect youth from secondhand smoke and help youth stay tobacco free as they:

  • Make tobacco use less socially acceptable.
  • Set a healthy example for young people.
  • Reduce the opportunities for young people to use tobacco products.

PACT members and Armando Silva will be painting the mural in June 2017. Visit them and the mural located on the corner of 8th Avenue and 7th Street, Greeley.
