Families United to End the Rising Tobacco Epidemic

About Our Program

The main focus of the F.U.E.R.T.E. Project is to address tobacco-related health inequities among Hispanic/Latinos in the Cities of Palm Desert and La Quinta. F.U.E.R.T.E. strives to prevent tobacco use among youth and spread awareness of the prevalence and dangers of usage.


F.U.E.R.T.E. is dedicated to educating community members and partners through interactive trainings and presentations designed to bring light to the accessibility and danger tobacco products pose to the Hispanic/Latino community.


In F.U.E.R.T.E., we believe community engagement is key to a strong and healthy community. Community members and partners will work together to spread awareness of tobacco related harms and support one another to build momentum to end the influence of the commercial tobacco industry.


The F.U.E.R.T.E. Project aims to empower community members to voice their concerns and actively engage in decision making within their communities.
