Tobacco & Nicotine
- The prevalence of smokeless tobacco use in the U.S. is increasing and its use is a risk factor for a number of adverse health outcomes. Currently, there is limited evidence on the effectiveness of quitlines for tobacco cessation among smokeless tobacco users.
- The Oklahoma Communities of Excellence in Tobacco Control (CX) program was established in 2004. Thirty-three CX grants have been funded to implement comprehensive tobacco control programs in 50 counties and one tribal nation.
