Atlas 9

WHO - No, it's not the famous statue of Atlas and it isn't
the rock group The Who. WHO is the World Health Organization and they
have a fantastic web site. Their recent material for teaching is called
Atlas. This PDF (which you could easily print or show on your computer)
shows the parts of the body affected by tobacco. It also has a bubble
about chemicals in cigarettes. Best of all, it's free.


CATCH collaborated with researchers at Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health to createCATCH My Breath™, a prevention program specific to middle and high schoolers’ use of E-cigarettes.
