We initiate and support initiatives related to smoking cessation, smoking prevention and protection from second-hand smoke. Our goal is to reduce the burden of tobacco use to the community through building capacity within individuals to quit smoking or reduce the amount that is smoked.
Initiatives include providing smoking cessation training, supporting smoking prevention education in schools and distributing tobacco reduction related resources.
Call your nearest Tobacco Reduction Coordinator to learn more about services available.
