CPS, Boone County Team Up For Anti-Vaping Campaign

A marketing campaign to curb vaping among teenagers is about to launch with an emphasis on healthy lifestyles.

The campaign, called “Stand up for Your Own Health,” is a joint venture between Columbia Public Schools and Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services Department.

Sarah Varvaro, an educator with the health department, organized a campaign over the summer with a kickoff this fall.

The campaign is funded through a grant from the county. Flyers, advertisements and social media posts are being created for middle and high schools in Boone County.
