Tobacco Prevention Projects

tobacco free communities logo header

Because tobacco use (including cigarette smoking, cigar smoking, and smokeless tobacco use) remains the leading preventable cause of death in the United States...

Because 53,800 innocent people who do not smoke die every year from exposure to secondhand smoke in the U.S., and many more suffer unnecessarily...

Because each day in the United States approximately 3,600 young people between the ages of 12 and 17 years initiate cigarette smoking, and an estimated 1,100 young people become daily cigarette smokers...

Because of all the above ~ America On Track is implementing two comprehensive tobacco prevention projects aimed at Lowering Youth Access to Tobacco and Reducing Exposure to Secondhand Smoke.
