Tobacco Prevention and Control - Public Health Region 4/5N

The Office of Tobacco Prevention and Control is the state's tobacco information resource center. The office also has eight regional tobacco coordinators. Coordinators conduct FDA compliance investigations within the region. They coordinate training workshops for work sites, schools, healthcare providers, and community organizations.

Training workshops:

  • Facilitate the implementation of non-smoking policies,
  • Provide tobacco education resources, and
  • Promote smoke-free indoor air.

Regional staff helps with the development of non-smoking policies and ordinances for local communities and work sites. Youth and vendor compliance education helps reduce youth tobacco use and start tobacco prevention.
