Students Do Better With Tobacco

Cheyenne, Wy – State education officials are mostly pleased with a new risk survey of Wyoming Youth. The 2003 survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control finds that fewer students high school and middle school students are using tobacco then they did in 1995. They also found that the numbers of those having unprotected sex are decreasing. But concerns about alcohol use continue. Wyoming's At-Risk and School Health Program Supervisor Sunny Kaste says they would like to take some of their success with tobacco prevention and shift it into alcohol.
