Tobacco Use Cessation and Prevention Program

The Tobacco Use Cessation and Prevention Program aim is to improve the public health by:

  • Preventing youth from starting to use tobacco
  • Encouraging people to stop using tobacco
  • Protecting our families, friends and community from the dangers of secondhand smoke
  • Working with community leaders to encourage ways to protect the community from the hazards of tobacco use.

Staff members are available to provide presentations to the general community, workshops for health professionals and to coordinate community events for all ages.

For more information about the program and its services, contact Angela Brumley-Shelton at 859-288-2446 or email at Angela.Brumley-Shelton@ky.gov.
