Regional Erie - Tobacco Free WNY

Erie & Niagara Counties (EN)

We educate and engage community leaders and youth to promote policy changes that reduce the prevalence and acceptance of tobacco use. Our Community Engagement and Reality Check coordinators work together to promote smoke-free housing, tobacco free outdoor air and responsible marketing of tobacco products. We are funded by the New York Tobacco Control Program and located at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Our Reality Check students, ambassadors for change in their communities, advocate for a tobacco-free generation.

Current Reality Check programs: Hutch Tech High School, Depew High School, Niagara Falls High School, New Life Christian School, North Park Junior High School and Lockport High School.
Make your school a part of this growing program. Contact Lindsay Amico at 716.845-2920 or lindsay.amico@roswellpark.org
