Join us for the First Annual Fall Feastival on October 30!
The mission of The Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi is to provide educational information and awareness about the impact of tobacco on Mississippi and to improve the culture of health in Mississippi by applying lessons learned in tobacco prevention to other leading causes of death and disease impacting our state and nation. Our successes working with public and private organizations from across the state and around the nation have positioned us as a public health leader, which allows us to advance initiatives focused on improving health outcomes in Mississippi.
From youth programs to legislative advocacy, we have been able to forge relationships and lead collaborative efforts that have directly resulted in double digit reductions in tobacco prevalence among middle school and high schools and the adoption of more than 100 comprehensive smokefree ordinances throughout Mississippi. Over the past five years, we have expanded our focus to include childhood obesity prevention through the promotion of physical activity and healthy eating habits.
