April 28, 2017

On April 28, 2017 Bradford High School (BHS) Students Working Against Tobacco Youth attended the 9th Annual QuitDoc Tobacco Prevention Summit in Gainesville, Florida.

The theme for this one day summit was Emerging Issues of Tobacco Control. SWAT students participated in two keynote sessions where Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids presented about taking down tobacco and informing decision makers.

SWAT students also participated in two breakout sessions. Youth breakout sessions were interactive and an amazing training experience for BHS youth. Students were trained on public speaking and on rural county tobacco initiatives. 

This training was an awesome opportunity for BHS SWAT students to continue to gain information and be educated on important information about tobacco prevention. This will allow SWAT students to take information back to students on the BHS campus.
