Tobacco ToolKit

THE TOBACCO PREVENTION TOOLKIT

The Tobacco Prevention Toolkit is based on NCPC member Dr. Bonnie Halpern-Felsher’s (Professor and Principal Investigator of this project at Stanford University) research on adolescent tobacco use, risk perceptions, and decision-making, which shows that adolescents’ perceptions of risks, benefits, and social norms predict tobacco use.

The ultimate goals of the Toolkit are: 

  1. For students to understand basic information about tobacco products, including e-cigarettes/vape pens, and the harm they cause
  2. For students to gain awareness of strategies manufacturers of tobacco, including e-cigarettes/vape pens, employ to increase use among adolescents through deceptive and creative marketing strategies
  3. For students to gain skills to refuse experimentation and use of tobacco
  4. For school teachers and administrators to be able to develop and set new school policies
