#199: Awesome Advocacy

Recently, Stony Brook University students who are passionate about health education advocated with Suffolk County to see Tobacco Action and Health Education reinstated! They were in danger of being cut, and would have affected all of Suffolk County and eliminated health education in schools. Luckily, the hard work by SB Students and other advocates on behalf of the Suffolk Office of Health Education paid off and it was not cut!  Congratulations!
