Welcome to Breathe Easy of Southwest Missouri!

Breathe Easy of SW Missouri is the name under which the Jasper and Newton Counties Community Health Collaborative of the Southwest Missouri Community Alliance disseminates information and education about the dangers of smoking, smokeless tobacco and exposure to secondhand smoke. The Community Health Collaborative (CHC) decided to provide this website as a service to the communities of Southwest Missouri, which are dealing with the huge burden that smoking related illnesses place on all citizens, even those who do not smoke.

We Want To Hear From YOU!
