BARRIE - Public Health Nurse Jennifer Bouwmeester (left) presents a Tobacco-Free Champion Award to staff and participants at a Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) drop-in program for pregnant women, new moms and caregivers. Staff and facilitators of the programs held across Simcoe County were recognized by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit for their commitment to give children and caregivers their best chance for a healthy tobacco-free future. As well, moms and their household contacts can access free quitting supports, including cessation counseling, thanks to a fast-track referral system set up between the programs and public health nurses. The award was one of three presented this year to celebrate World No Tobacco Day. A full list of all Tobacco- Free Champions is available on the website at simcoemuskokahealth.org
