Webinar: Who's Leading the Leading Health Indicators - Tobacco

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States. Each year, nearly half a million American adults die prematurely of smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. Preventing tobacco use and helping people who use tobacco to quit can improve health and quality of life for many Americans. This webinar will emphasize progress made toward achieving the Healthy People 2020 Tobacco Leading Indicators. Attendees will also learn about partnerships to reduce tobacco use and exposure.
