6 on Health: CVS, other groups join together to reduce number of young Americans who smoke
CVS is on a mission to reduce the number of young Americans who smoke.
CVS announced it has teamed up with the American Cancer Society and Truth Initiative.
Together, the groups will provide grants to 126 colleges and universities across the country to help their campuses to become tobacco-free.
The groups are donating $1.2 million or about $10,000 to each school.
The money will go towards a number of initiatives, including programs that help students, staff and faculty quit smoking.
The mission is part of CVS's five-year, $50 million commitment to create a tobacco-free generation.
