This organizational committee is called the Tobacco-Free Workgroup. (TFW) The increasing concern surrounding preventable smoking related illnesses and deaths , has prompted the creation of such a committee. The vision of this committee is oriented in the direction to facilitate the creation of a Tobacco-Free Miami-Dade County. Through collaboration with various partnerships and organizations, the TFW has established its mission to decrease smoking, tobacco use Felicia Sutton The Tobacco-Free Workgroup amongst and second-hand smoke exposure in Miami-Dade County. To fulfill this mission the TFW has taken on the task of mobilizing partners to focus on initiatives and activities to reduce and prevent initiation of tobacco use (especially among youth); provide resources for smoking cessation; and establish advocates for new ordinances and laws to eliminate second hand smoke exposure on local and state levels. This mission is addressed by the individual subcommittees established by the TFW which include: • Youth Initiative and Prevention Subcommittee • Young Adult initiative and Prevention Subcommittee • Policy and System Change Subcommittee If you are interested joining any of the TFW committees in helping to make a difference in your community in the fight against tobacco please register at: http://healthymiamidade.org/ Tobacco-Free%20Workgroup/ or contact Germaine Ebanks Miami-Dade County Health Dept. 18255 Homestead Avenue Miami, Florida 33157 ( 3 0 5 ) 234-5400 ext. 2513
