How can students get involved with COUGH?
There are two levels of involvement with COUGH (1) Student Advisory Board Member and (2) Student Advocate. Students involved at either level have opportunities to participate in local and/or statewide college tobacco-free initiatives.
COUGH Student Advisory Board
The COUGH Student Advisory Board is made of approximately 10 undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent college graduates interested in working closely with CYAN staff to provide direction for statewide college tobacco-free efforts. COUGH Advisory Board members serve one-year terms from July 1 to June 30.
Applications for COUGH Student Advisory Board members are currently open. Applications are due June 17, 2016.
COUGH Student Advocates
Students currently working on a tobacco-related issue on a California college or university are encouraged to get involved in the statewide movement. Individuals involved with COUGH will get connected with other students throughout the state who are advocating for tobacco-free policy change, educating their campus communities on tobacco issues, and/or providing cessation services and quit resources to their peers. COUGH Student Advocates will also get updates on statewide advocacy opportunities, trainings, and activities.
