As part of MD Anderson's mission to end cancer, we're aspiring to
raise the first tobacco-free generation. It's this goal that led to the
creation of the ASPIRE program.
ASPIRE, which stands for A Smoking Prevention Interactive Experience,
aims to educate teens about the dangers of tobacco use, so they never start smoking.
For teens who already use tobacco, it provides information and strategies to quit smoking.
This free, web-based school curriculum is now available to students
in grades 8-12 as a way to educate and, hopefully, stop the use of
vaping products by our students.

the four types of dating/domestic violence
