FASD Awareness Campaign


Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are 100% preventable. CPA's goal is for PA to join with the 20 other states that have mandatory signage in restaurants, bars, and taverns. Our purpose is to educate patrons about the harm of alcohol consumption during pregnancy. 


Help us with our FASD awareness campaign. Click here for FASD Talking PointsFASD poster #1 and FASD poster #2

CVS to Stop Selling Tobacco Products by October 1

CVS Caremark Corp. will stop selling tobacco products in their CVS/ Pharmacy stores by Oct. 1. CVS will also launch a smoking cessation program. 

CVS said: “'Ending the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS/pharmacy is simply the right thing to do for the good of our customers and our company. The sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with our purpose – helping people on their path to better health,” said the company in a statement.
