Vaping considered an 'epidemic' in U.S.
schools, and it is hurting our youth

 
HOW JUUL MADE NICOTINE GO VIRAL
 

Johnson County is fortunate to have a grant for the Baby & Me Tobacco Free program, an incentive for pregnant women to quit smoking for the health of their baby and themselves. 


The program includes four pre-birth counseling sessions and monthly monitoring to ensure the mother is not smoking. Participants who test smoke-free earn two $25 diaper vouchers pre-delivery and monthly vouchers up to one year following birth, for a possible total of $350 in vouchers.


In addition, a smoker who lives with the pregnant woman can also enroll and earn vouchers.


Johnson County WIC at 600 Ironwood Drive, Suite I in Franklin administers the program for local women. The program is open to all county women regardless of income.
