Regional Genesee - Tobacco Free WNY

Genesee, Livingston, Orleans & Wyoming Counties (GOW)

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.

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

Current Reality Check programs: Avon Central School, Dansville Central School, St. Joseph’s School (Batavia), Notre Dame High School, Kendall Central School and Medina Central School.

Make your school a part of this growing youth program. Contact Brittany Bozzer at 585-219-4064 or brittany.bozzer@roswellpark.org
