The Alabama Department of Public Health recently awarded the Mobile County Health Department's TEEN Center a youth tobacco-prevention mini-grant of $28,474.
The funds will be used to implement the LifeSkills Training curriculum for students in an area middle school and to train and enable the Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) groups to work as advocates for strong, tobacco control.
This is the eighth year of funding for the project, which now has SWAT groups at Bryant, Davidson, LeFlore, and Murphy high schools, and Phillips Preparatory School.
