MAKE IT MAKE SENSE
END TOBACCO USE TODAY
To bring together, the community and resources for cessation and prevention in an awareness campaign.
This campaign is focused on raising awareness as well as providing linkage to cessation services. Inadequate knowledge regarding smoking-related risks and the lack of awareness and access to evidence-based cessation services are barriers to quitting, and this campaign directly addresses that issue. Through our combined efforts we will increase the number of people who seek cessation services, as well as equip young people with the tools needed to navigate the deadly effects of tobacco and nicotine.
Our partners deeply care about the health and well-being of our community, with special attention on Black, Latino, LGBTQ and other marginalized communities most targeted by big tobacco. We are committed to stepping up to the challenge and bringing an end to tobacco and nicotine use for both youth and adults in Central Ohio.

CLEAR THE SMOKE ON VAPING
The 2022 National Youth Tobacco Survey indicates that over 14% of American High Schools students and 3% of Middle School Students report current e-cigarette (vaping) usage.
In 2019, the CDC reported that 36.7% of Ohio high school youth indicated use of tobacco and nicotine products, including e-cigarettes. Among Ohio high school youth, 4.9% reported currently smoking cigarettes.
With the help of our partners, the Make It Make Sense targeted media campaign has successfully increased awareness on the dangers of tobacco and nicotine usage via a variety of marketing channels and grassroots efforts. We are continuously educating the public on the harms of tobacco use and connecting individuals who want help with local cessation services that work for their needs. As the campaign continues we, alongside our partners, intend to increasingly heighten awareness and equip more individuals with the tools and resources necessary to lead them to a tobacco and nicotine free lifestyle.
