The Smoking & Health Action Coalition (SHAC) is one of 25 statewide Advancing Tobacco-Free Communities grantees of the NYS Department of Health Tobacco Control Program, serving Livingston and Monroe Counties. We work to change the community environment to develop and support tobacco-free norms.  The program includes a youth action component, Reality Check, where peer-to-peer and youth-to-community education is utilized to effectively communicate the major impact tobacco use has on community health.



Cigarette use alone results in an estimated 480,000 deaths each year in the US, including nearly 28,000 deaths in New York State.
