The 18-24 year old population is the highest risk group for tobacco use. Consistent and prolonged tobacco use is detrimental to health, but even occasional tobacco use can lead to health risks.
Objective: Prevent tobacco use/nicotine addiction through individual education and outreach events that foster academic success and overall health and wellness.
Tobacco consultations consist of 45-60 minute one-on-one confidential appointments. Please call 949-824-9355 to make an appointment. You can also email Tobacco Programs Manager, Jasmine A. Blackburn (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
