TCC's mission is to improve and protect the health of San Diegans by promoting tobacco-free lifestyles and environments. TCC is committed to assisting tobacco users in quitting, encouraging individuals to refrain from using tobacco products, and supporting the establishment of tobacco-free policies.
This effort will be accomplished by promoting open collaboration, joint program planning and culturally-appropriate interventions through the assistance of the Local Lead Agency (the Tobacco Control Resource Program) and community members.
Role of the Coalition
TCC's role is to provide members with a forum for training, capacity building and information exchange. TCC develops and coordinates tobacco control activities in San Diego County while creating an atmosphere conducive to agency collaboration. It provides a united voice to respond to the tobacco industry and generates public support for tobacco control education issues and efforts.
Functions of the Coalition Members
Coalition members provide advice on the development and implementation of the Local Lead Agency's (Tobacco Control Resource Program's) comprehensive tobacco control plan. Members participate in cooperative planning and development while acting as advocates for tobacco control activities in their communities. TCC membership includes all agencies with an interest in addressing tobacco education/control efforts.
TCC meetings are held at 10:00 A.M. on the second Wednesday of February, April, June, August, October and December. Meetings are usually held in the Coronado Room of the County of San Diego Health Services Complex at 3851 Rosecrans Street, San Diego, CA 92110.
