Tobacco use remains the number one preventable cause of death and disease in North Carolina and the United States. Your faith community can help reduce disease caused by tobacco and nicotine use.
With the help of the NC Department of Health and Human Services Tobacco Prevention & Control Branch, PHW is working to:
- Prevent the initiation of smoking and other tobacco use
- Eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke
- Help tobacco-users quit; and
- Advance health equity by identifying and eliminating commercial tobacco product-related inequities and disparities among N.C. populations and communities.
