The Lake county Tobacco Education Program (LCTEP) is an education and policy-passed program that utilizes social norm change strategies to develop smoke-free policies. We provide education to the public on the harms of exposure and the harms of use. We distribute cessation information and convene youth and adult coalitions composed of Lake County community members dedicated to helping create change in the health of Lake County
Each month our Health Education Coalition Meeting is held to update, inform, plan, and collaborate with community coalition members. This assures that the public and policymakers alike are afforded all benefits and education available to them under each program represented. This coalition serves the Tobacco Education, Snap-Ed, and Lead Education programs.
