The Tobacco Prevention & Cessation Program aims to reduce the burden of tobacco use on residents of Shelby County by offering information and education on tobacco prevention. The goal of the program is to reduce health statistics associated with tobacco use by eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke and tobacco-related health disparities, preventing the initiation of tobacco use among young people, and promoting quitting among adults and young people. The coordinator for the Tobacco Prevention & Cessation Program collaborates with various community stakeholders, including schools, colleges and universities, behavioral health facilities, and other organizations to promote tobacco prevention strategies and tobacco cessation resources. Technical assistance is also available for organizations interested in implementing a tobacco free policy.
