A team from Family Medicine at Scappoose presented Tar Wars, a tobacco-free education program, to fourth graders at Peterson Elementary School in Scappoose Feb. 26-March 1. Participants included Heather Davidson, PA-C; Aubrey Bridges, MPAS, PA-C; Ian Penner, PA-C; Steve Wahls, MD, FAAFP; and third-year medical students Courtney Bell and Thu Pham.
"We had great participation from all the kids and teacher support was wonderful," Wahls said. "I am looking forward to next year's presentations. The support has made it possible to help a lot of kids articulate the disadvantages of tobacco use."
Tar Wars is sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians. The program's mission is to educate students about being tobacco free, provide them with the tools to make positive decisions regarding their health and to promote personal responsibility for their wellbeing.
