King's Daughters' Health welcomes Natalie Garrett as Jefferson County Tobacco Cessation and Prevention Coordinator. A Madison native, Garrett is a 2010 graduate of Madison Consolidated High School and 2014 graduate of Franklin College. Prior to joining KDH, she worked in Marketing for Grote Industries.
"I am very excited about the opportunity to make an impact in the community I grew up in," Garrett said. "The consequences of tobacco have impacted my family personally. One of my goals is to prevent others from having to go through what we did."
Garrett will serve as a resource for the hospital, schools, local government, and a variety of community agencies. She can be reached at 812.801.0598 or email@example.com. Residents who need assistance with quitting tobacco use (smoking or smokeless) may contact the Indiana Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT-NOW.
Although much work has already been done to reduce tobacco use and the effects of second-hand smoke in public areas, Garrett understands the need to keep moving forward.
"We still have a lot of work to do in the realm of tobacco prevention and education," Garrett added. "I'm looking forward to the work ahead. I want to be a resource for the community and help make a positive impact."
