IMPORTANT NOTICE

The built project was funded by the California’s Tobacco Tax Fund (Proposition 99) from 1999-2007, and in that time, developed numerous resources about cessation and prevention of tobacco use by construction and blue collar workers.  Many of these materials are still available in hard copy through the Tobacco Education Clearinghouse of California (TECC):  www.tobaccofreecatalog.org  (search for “union”).

We are pleased to have received funding from Pfizer to update the website and select materials.  Please contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

"Joe Chemo" - http://www.joechemo.org

Since April is Cancer Control Month we thought a web site that emphasized both the consequences and causes of cancer would be appropriate. Then we discovered www.joechemo.org. Some of you may have seen the "Joe Chemo" poster - a hairless camel in a hospital bed. Now he has his own web site that is both informative and fun. Take the "Tobacco I.Q. Test." Look into your future with the "Smoke-A-Scope." Most of all, learn about the consequences of tobacco use, how tobacco companies advertise, and how to quit.

Although Joe Chemo may seem like a joke, there's nothing funny about chemotherapy. This web site is dedicated to chemo patients and their family members, with the hope that it will reduce the number of people who smoke cigarettes and have to suffer through medical treatment.
