LA County Tobacco Control and Prevention Program is proud to partner with the Sparks for Gospel Night and to have Coach Gillom as their spokeswoman to raise awareness that more African-Americans lose their lives to diseases caused by smoking than from murder, AIDS, substance abuse and car crashes combined. Juneteenth is a time for assessment, self-improvement and planning for the future, and a perfect time to commit to living tobacco-free.
