Youth Tobacco Prevention Program
The Southern Nevada Health District’s XPOZ (pronounced “expose”) tobacco prevention coalition was formed in 2000 with a core group of 30 diverse youth ranging in age from 13-17. Based in Clark County, XPOZ has grown its membership to over 23,000.
According to the Nevada Youth Risk Behavior Survey Report, the youth smoking rate in Clark County has decreased from 33 percent in 1999 to 14 percent in 2007. Prior to the development of the XPOZ coalition, Clark County youth smoking rates had remained constant near the 33 to 35 percent range.
XPOZ conducts numerous youth tobacco prevention outreach activities and is committed to further reducing tobacco use among Clark County youth.
