The Clay County Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) Program is Growing!
September 20, 2016

SWAT Coordinator, Joy Moritz, was hard at work this summer prepping Clay County SWAT for the 2016-2017 school year. We had seven returning clubs and three new clubs which brings us to our goal of ten total clubs!

The following schools are hosting a SWAT club this school year:  

Students Working Against Tobacco works to change the social norms associated with tobacco use. This means we want to change the way people think about tobacco… making it less desirable, less acceptable and less accessible.

We do this by advocating for change in local policies that affect how tobacco is marketed, how it is sold, and where it can be used. SWAT members participate in a wide range of activities including community education and outreach, public speaking, collecting data, and media advocacy.
