Tobacco 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. Oneida County Health Department also delivers leadership, technical assistance and organizational support to the Northwoods Tobacco-Free Coalition.
The mission of the Northwoods Tobacco-Free Coalition is to improve the health of Oneida County by reducing tobacco use through public information and community involvement. The coalition is actively involved in WI WINS, FACT, Tobacco Treatment, and Second Hand Smoke Initiatives.
