Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of disease, disability, and death in the United States. 443,000 people annually are estimated to die prematurely from smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke, and another 8.6 million live with a major illness caused by tobacco use.

The Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation program works to decrease tobacco use in Fairfield County by working with children and adults to choose to never start using tobacco and by promoting and supporting quitting (cessation) efforts.
