Catalyzing Change in West Virginia’s Smallest County

Recently, Governor Jim Justice of West Virginia and public health partners took a significant stand in addressing youth vaping, launching a statewide anti-vaping campaign (listen to the Governor’s announcement starting at 5:04). Over the next three years, this initiative will integrate our CATCH My Breath program in school communities in every county. Among the many West Virginians championing this cause is Christy Dye, a health teacher of 17 years and RAZE Adult Advisor. Listen to how she is making remarkable strides with youth in her own county.

We applaud the individual efforts of Christy and the collaborative efforts of all West Virginians who are making a difference in the lives of youth and in their greater community.
