Quitters prosper with Northern Health funds


Northern Health is encouraging quitters through its “True North Strong and Smoke-Free” campaign.

The Authority is offering up to $250 in individual grants to community organizations and schools to help decrease tobacco use.

Interested organizations can submit project proposals by Dec. 1. Projects can focus on various aspects of reducing tobacco usage such as tobacco hazard awareness or the issues surrounding second-hand smoke.

Officials say past projects have included youth forums for discussing tobacco issues, multimedia displays and smoke-free promotions for public and private facilities. The Authority has given out more than $65,000 towards these projects over the past seven years.

Applications can be found at www.northernhealth.ca/YourHealth/EnvironmentalHealth/TobaccoReduction.aspx
