Tobacco Prevention Education Program
The tobacco industry spends $137 million per year to reach into every community in Oregon to promote and sell its products. In Oregon children and adults are bombarded with messages pushing them to smoke cigarettes or chew tobacco. As well, Portland is being used as a test market for marketing smokeless tobacco products and other forms of tobacco, such as hookahs.
Oregon's Tobacco Prevention and Education Program funds local tobacco control programs to engage Oregonians in their homes, workplaces, schools, and other public places. These programs are found at county health departments, tribes, schools, and community-based organizations throughout Oregon. They counter tobacco marketing where it matters the most - in the places where people work, play, learn and live.
These programs engage their communities and challenge them to become healthier through preventing tobacco use and they have seen real results from their efforts. Local programs statewide are critical to turning the tide of death and disability from tobacco use in Oregon.
