Tobacco and Chronic Disease Prevention
Tobacco-Free living is vital for health. Quit Now Indiana helps to prevent people from smoking and to increase quit attempts for those who do.
Smoking is a major cause of chronic lung disease and heart attacks. Tobacco use is still the leading cause of preventable disease and death.
