This year, we’re proud to be supported by the Truth Initiative, America’s largest non-profit public health organization dedicated to making tobacco use a thing of the past.
Truth Initiative works to educate the public on the dangers of tobacco use through education, tobacco-control research and policy studies, and community activism and engagement. Since 2000, the organization’s advocacy has helped bring teen cigarette use down from 23 percent to 6 percent (as of 2016).
As an organization that promotes the health and well-being of children within the hospital environment, we’ve been inspired by Truth’s mission, and hope to spread awareness for their cause during this year’s Gamers for Giving.
Representatives from the organization will be onsite throughout the weekend, handing out all kinds of swag and goodies. You can learn more about their efforts by visiting https://www.thetruth.com/.
We’ll see you on April 1st and 2nd at the EMU Convocation Center!
