Coalition Member Spotlight

Meet Kasey Cable  

Tobacco Prevention Program
Manager, Feeling Good MN/CentraCare Health

Member since 2017
Q: In your opinion, what are you most proud of that the SUP Coalition has done or is working on?

K: What excites me is the amount of help there is out there. As a student, it’s very hard to get ideas brought to life and the SUP Coalition really helps with that, which is a tremendous thing on both parts. I love how we have students involved so we can know what the “cool” and “popular” things are for the current generation.
Q: What is one tip you have for parents/caring adults in terms of prevention?

K: Be curious and be informed – and don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Be sure you’re seeking out credible resources. Substance use and abuse is always evolving and arming yourself with relevant, fact-based information is key

Q: What do you do in your spare time? Provide a fun fact about yourself

K: In my spare time I love to travel and spend time outside with my husband; on the lake, camping, golfing, skiing or throwing axes in our backyard. We’re major Minnesota sports fans and are obsessed with our rescue bulldog Sophie – if there’s a pet event going on, you’ll be sure to find us there.
