Confidential Child Care Facility Tobacco Use Survey

 

In an effort to reduce harmful secondhand smoke exposure to children, the Rural Virginia United Coalition, in partnership with the MP-NN CSB Prevention Services Division, are recognizing childcare facilities that are promoting a 100% smoke-free environment.

 

The scientific evidence indicates that there is “no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke” as reported in the 2006 surgeon general report on the health consequences of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke.1

 

The survey that we are conducting of the 261 child care facilities that are operating in the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck ten county region can be completed here by clicking this link http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NLF8XZC.

 

Once we receive your completed survey, individual child care centers that are 100% smoke-free will be presented with a lawn flag, a certificate, and will be promoted as a 100% smoke free facility through the media and web site listings.

 

Your participation in this important pro health initiative is greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions you can call us toll free at 1-888-PREV-550.

Addressing Underage Drinking on the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck

 Town Hall Meetings on Preventing Underage Drinking In Your Community

Changing Community Norms Offers Promise For Preventing Underage Drinking

 

The Alcohol Prevention Task Force in partnership with the Rural Virginia United Coalition and the Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Community Services Board Prevention Services Division is targeted to changing community norms in an effort to prevent underage drinking.  Young people’s alcohol use is an extremely critical problem.  This Task Force is designed to give communities the tools and strategies to prevent youth from beginning to use alcohol and to educate those who do drink about the risks they are taking.  The Alcohol Prevention Task Force is a community effort and will provide health professionals, parents, educators, public officials, law enforcement officers, faith based organizations, community leaders, and youth with communication tools and strategies needed to reduce the occurrence and acceptance of underage drinking.

 

The Task Force’s primary goal will be to motivate communities to change norms that may encourage or allow underage drinking.  The secondary goals of The Task Force are to increase the number of youth who understand the risks associated with alcohol use and to empower them to resist the pressures to drink that they often get from their peers and from advertising.

 

Reports from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reveal alarming information on the number of young people who drink.  The 2005 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse established that there were about 10.8 million underage drinkers in the United States. 

 

Each community must recognize the serious consequences of underage drinking.  The Alcohol Prevention Task Force is an opportunity for communities to work together and make their highways safer, their schools more effective, and the future of their young people more certain.

 

To schedule a Town Hall Meeting on Preventing Underage Drinking in your community, please call Prevention Services at 1-888-PREV-550. For additional information regarding Town Hall meetings log onto www.stopalcoholabuse.gov
