The UNM Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention has launched the first-ever statewide tobacco project directory. Approximately 170 organizations conducting tobacco use prevention, cessation, advocacy and other tobacco-related projects are now available on-line.

The site lists the names of organizations, contact person, mission statements, project descriptions and links to their websites.

"We hope the directory will be useful to people wanting to network with others doing similar projects and will serve as a resource to those wanting to know about programs in their region of the state," said Dr. Sally Davis, director of the Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention.

The UNM Prevention and Research Center partners with American Indian communities to improve health and well being through research, evaluation, training and practice.
