Tobacco Prevention

Approximately 6,200 Oklahomans die each year from tobacco-related causes, 700 of which are caused by exposure to secondhand smoke alone. The Center for the Advancement of Wellness works to prevent tobacco initiation and reduce existing tobacco use through systems-level and social norm change. 

Tobacco prevention programs include support for Communities of Excellence in Tobacco Control grantees, monitoring of clean indoor air regulations, policy implementation to reduce secondhand smoke exposure and coordination of Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) teams across the state, among other efforts.
