Tobacco & Chronic Disease Prevention

The Tobacco & Chronic Disease Prevention  is a comprehensive prevention and education program that addresses tobacco and chronic disease conditions. 
 
Our Tobacco Prevention Services include the reduction of tobacco use with our youth, and referral assistance to any adult County resident who wants to quit using tobacco, and recruitment of high school students to join Program's "Youth Coalition". All 15 Arizona counties are funded by State collected tobacco tax revenues and administered by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), Bureau of Tobacco and Chronic Disease (BTCD) so that we can collaboratively work to reduce tobacco use and improve the well being of all residents.
