Tobacco Prevention & Control
Tobacco use can lead to nicotine dependence and serious health problems, such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. Tobacco dependence is a chronic disease that often requires repeated intervention and numerous quit attempts. HPC addresses tobacco use in Southeastern Pennsylvania through tobacco cessation services, youth tobacco prevention, tobacco-free policy implementation, and enforcement and merchant education around youth tobacco sale laws and point of sale tobacco advertising.
