Nabors, Laura; Iobst, Emily A.; McGrady, Meghan E.
Journal of School Health, v77 n6 p331-333 Aug 2007
The majority of individuals who will become "smokers" begin smoking during their teenage years. Schools are optimal settings for relaying messages about health risks associated with smoking and for implementing smoking prevention programs. This article presents successful components of smoking prevention programs, describes the evaluation process, and presents ideas for enhancing professional or stakeholder involvement in programs and improving opportunities to extend prevention messages beyond the boundaries of the school. A twelve-step process for selection and evaluation of a program is listed in a table. (Contains 1 table.)
