Auburn takes bold action – prohibits e-cigarette and tobacco use in city parks!

After community members in Auburn voiced their concerns about taking their kids to local parks or going there to exercise because of exposure to second hand smoke and e-cigarette vapor the Auburn City Council has taken bold action and unanimously voted to prohibit e-cigarette/vaping and tobacco use in all city parks!

Community partners including the American Heart Association worked with the city’s Blue Ribbon Committee to craft the ordinance. At the public hearing eight people came out to testify in support of the ordinance including local retired surgeon Dr. Bruce Wadler. He spoke about the devastation that tobacco use has had on his patients as part of his testimony in support of the ordinance.

GUEST BLOG: Healthy Head, Healthy Heart

Can you believe the holidays are right around the corner? While the holidays often mean family, Christmas, and good cheer, this month I want to talk about something that’s also all too real during this season: depression.

Help Implement Medicaid Expansion Now

Even though the voters of Nebraska approved Medicaid Expansion to help 90,000 Nebraskans in 2018, it still has not been implemented. Nebraska Health and Human Services is proposing a complicated and unnecessary waiver. This waiver not only will delay expansion until October 2020 but also institutes work requirements to gain benefits.

We Beat Big Tobacco in Colorado!

We did it! 

With the help and support of advocates like you, we took on Big Tobacco this November at the ballot box and WON!  This Tuesday, voters in Eagle County, Summit County, Pitkin County, Glenwood Springs, New Castle, Crested Butte, and Vail made their voices heard and passed ballot initiatives which will raise the tax on tobacco and nicotine products, including e-cigarettes.  And with over 33% of Colorado school children reporting using tobacco or nicotine products - 27% saying they used e-cigarettes - this victory could not come soon enough.
