In Maine cities and towns, remarkable changes in tobacco prevention and control are happening. Parents are getting involved in their schools and communities, and they are working with other parents and organizations to meet the goals they’ve set for making their kids and communities tobacco free. Youth who are involved in tobacco prevention are furthering efforts of teachers and community leaders and having a profound influence on their peers and the adults around them.
The Healthy Maine Partnerships (HMPs) are building a healthier Maine by collaborating with local schools, community organizations, hospitals and other healthcare providers, businesses, municipalities, and volunteers. HMPs are dedicated to preventing diseases related to tobacco use, lack of physical activity, and poor nutrition. By reducing these risks, they help us all live longer and healthier lives. There are local HMP organizations in your community.
