LGBT Tobacco Prevention Program
In 2006, the Southern Nevada Health District developed a tobacco prevention program called CRUSH for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community.
This innovative program was developed after the 2005 Clark County Adult Tobacco Survey revealed an alarmingly high smoking rate among LGBT community members. The LGBT community continues to have disproportionately high smoking rates compared to other groups.
The CRUSH campaign utilizes numerous outreach strategies including:
- Hosting smoke-free LGBT activities
- Sponsorsing community events
- Advertising in local LGBT media
