Finley sixth-grade health students in Matthew Carbone’s and Amanda Sullivan’s classes were recently visited by Carol Meschkow from the Tobacco Action Coalition of Long Island and Dr. Sharon Harris, executive director of SAFE.

During the visit, which correlated with the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout, the pair educated students about tobacco and the impact tobacco advertising has on young people. The Great American Smokeout event challenges people to stop using tobacco and helps individuals learn about the many tools they can use to help them quit and stay tobacco-free.
