At the Adrienne Jules Foundation, we are determined to eliminate health disparities through public education, engagement and advocacy. Our specific focus for the Addiction Incorporated Tobacco Public Education program is to take up the charge of the Surgeon General, ensuring that the next generation is tobacco free. To that end, we invite you to join us through your contributions to the Addiction Incorporated Tobacco Public Education Campaign. We have three specific program areas:
- To develop a youth-oriented version of the “Addiction Incorporated “film that is produced and directed by youth ages 12 to 16;
- To implement the Common Core Standards curriculum in three pilot counties, with the first being Kern County in California;
- To screen the film in the Top 10 Priority States that have been identified as having the highest morbidity and mortality rates for ethnic youth, and the largest amounts of unused CDC funding.
Please continue to visit our site for more detailed information on program development. We look forward to you joining us as we execute programs and health communications campaigns designed to dissolve the barriers that leave too many people in isolation, marginalized and at risk of poor health.
