Tobacco Use Prevention
The mission of the California Tobacco Control Program is to keep tobacco out of the hands of youth, help tobacco users quit, and assist everyone in being able to live, work, and play in tobacco free environments.
On a local level our Health Educators work with retailers to make sure they are in compliance with state regulations, collaborate with Multi-Unit Housing facilities to create smoke-free living environments, and provide education to local schools and community events.
Tobacco causes a wide range of health issues such as heart disease, lung cancer, and respiratory problems. Health issues may not only come from actually smoking, but also from second and even third hand smoke. If you are interested in quitting, or if you have a family member or friend that has expressed interest in quitting, please contact our office for resources to help them through the process.
