Additional Staff and Information:
The coalition coordinator was the tobacco control coordinator for the local ACS. Her time was an in-kind contribution. The local public health district also provided significant in-kind contributions of staff time. The coalition included several key volunteers that were not representing any organization (two local physicians and a local lawyer).
The local hospital provided lunches for meetings. The ACS sent out action alerts. The local public health district developed fact sheets and other materials, and issued press releases.
The coalition relied heavily on technical assistance and support from Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights (ANR) and Action on Smoking and Health (ASH).
