Tobacco Prevention & Treatment

Tobacco UseTobacco is the single most important preventable cause of disease and premature death in Oneida County. Records from 2004 Oneida County death certificates indicate medical certification that tobacco use contributed to 29% of the deaths in Oneida County. The Oneida County Health Department continues to offer tobacco treatment programs to youth, adults and pregnant women in our community.
