Tobacco Education and Prevention Partnership

Tobacco use is the number one preventable cause of death and disease in the U.S., including Colorado. It causes cancer, heart disease and emphysema, harms reproductive health, and damages nearly every organ in the human body.

With grant funding from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the Broomfield Tobacco Education and Prevention Partnership uses a comprehensive approach to prevent vaping and tobacco use among youth, encourage quitting among youth and adults, and eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke.

On Friday, November 2, Governor John Hickenlooper released the Colorado Tobacco Prevention Blueprint and recognized "Vape-Free November" to increase awareness about the dangers of e-cigarettes and vaping, and to reduce use of all tobacco products by young people.
 
Colorado leads the nation in youth use of vapor products, with 27 percent of teens currently vaping. In Broomfield and Boulder counties, 36 percent of teens report vaping. Broomfield Public Health and Environment staff are partnering with schools and youth-serving organizations to educate the community about the risks of vaping.
 
Below is a Health Advisory from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment that contains information and evidence-based recommendations for addressing this emerging health issue.
