American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network to Host Tobacco Prevention Day
Join advocates from the American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org) Cancer Action Network and other public health organizations in efforts to reduce tobacco use in Nebraska. This year’s Tobacco Prevention Day at the Capitol will be held on Thursday, February 21, from 8 a.m. until noon. A new year brings new opportunities to save more lives in the fight against cancer.
Attendees will learn about the toll tobacco takes on Nebraska, meet with their state senator or their staff to discuss current tobacco prevention legislation, and get an understanding of how to bring about meaningful change that saves lives.
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is the non-partisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society. ACS CAN supports evidence-based policy and legislative solutions designed to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. The American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org) is on a mission to free the world from cancer. Until they do, they’ll be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention.
