Filed under: Daily News |

The El Paso County Public Health Department announced earlier this week that it will host next week a focus group on tobacco use and prevention among the region’s youth.

The group will meet at 5:30 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. at the El Paso County Citizen Service Center to “discuss attitudes and perceptions around the use and purchasing of tobacco products by youth,” according to a news release.

The meeting will also include a discussion on current tobacco law and regulation as well as possible preventative measures.

The Pasteur Room (where the event will be held) is in Suite 1200 of the Citizen Service Center, which is located at 1675 W. Garden of the Gods Road in Colorado Springs.
