Perceptions is proud to partner with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on the HIV/ TOBACCO Program. This program provides tobacco cessation courses, education, awareness, and presentations to the general public and the AIDS Service Organizations in the Great Lakes Bay Region and reaching to Traverse City and Marquette. Tobacco use is the #1 killer of the LGBT community and reduces the lives of all, but particularly those living with HIV.
