New Mexico African American Tobacco Prevention Network.
The NMAAT – the NM African American Tobacco Prevention Network – began as an offshoot of the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Abuse (ATODA) coalition. It was one of the collaboratives operating to improve the health of NM residents. NMAAT currently provides materials, information and education to businesses and schools about the smoking cessation alternatives available to residents in the state. We especially encourage African Americans to figure out alternatives to smoking and vaping and we hope to present as many options as we can to EVERYONE in the state!
Who We Are
NMAAT is a coalition of Organizations and Entrepreneurs who are working to educate our neighbors in NM to learn more about the dangers of smoking and vaping. We have been operating throughout NM since 2004.
What We Do
We provide materials, information and education to businesses and schools about the smoking cessation alternatives available to residents in the state.
NMAAT is focused on providing African Americans alternatives to smoking and vaping. We especially want to promote healthy lifestyles and wellness opportunities in our programming as an alternative to nicotine. We hope to present as many smoking cessation options as we can to EVERYONE in NM!
The NMAAT Prevention Network encourages healthier living that is nicotine free. NMAAT acknowledges, explores, and educates others about tobacco use and how addiction operates within a context of racial & socio-economic oppression. We encourage everyone to consider the range of options available to reduce their tobacco use
