Students Working Against Tobacco, the statewide youth-led movement, announced the names of its new Youth Advocacy Board members. Andreas Bergmann from Navarre High School was elected to be one of three regional representatives on the board. He has also been elected as Regional Task Manager, where he will be the liaison of the statewide YAB and SWAT leaders in Region 1.
The Youth Advocacy Board works in collaboration with the Florida Department of Health’s Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida to help plan the direction and goals of the SWAT organization and of the youth prevention component of the state’s tobacco control campaign. Students work with county grantees on a local level to support initiatives that educate others about tobacco use, help protect youth from tobacco, and strengthen local policies, especially those that protect the public from secondhand smoke.
