OCDE’s Tobacco-Use Prevention Education consortium uses state tobacco tax revenue to fund prevention efforts in eight participating districts.
With vaping use on the rise among young people, the TUPE program takes a four-pronged approach that embeds prevention curricula into health, science and P.E. courses while also promoting student-led anti-tobacco initiatives, school-based intervention strategies and tobacco cessation services, which are offered in partnership with the Orange County Health Care Agency.
Learn more about the consortium’s efforts to provide leadership, advocacy and support by watching the video, produced by OCDE’s media services team.
