Tennessee Teens in Action
Tobacco is no longer accepted as a social norm; Tennessee teens are educating their peers and influencing younger youth on the dangers of tobacco.
Alyssa Grinder recently educated multiple people on the harmful effects of using tobacco products at the Medical Missions event that was held on September 28th, in Hohenwald, Tennessee. Alyssa handed out information and demonstrated the harmful effects that tobacco and e-cigarettes cause to the body, lungs, and others around you.
