Tobacco Use and Exposure

Living tobacco-free is one of the most important choices you can make when it comes to your health. Approximately 6,200 Oklahomans die each year from tobacco-related causes, 700 of which are caused by exposure to secondhand smoke alone. The Cherokee Nation Community Health Promotion Program works with local community partners to eliminate secondhand smoke exposure, prevent tobacco use in youth and adults and promote tobacco cessation services for those who currently smoke or use other tobacco products through systems-level and social norm change.

The Tobacco Use Prevention program focuses on the following areas:

  • 24-7 Tobacco Free School policies
  • 24-7 Tobacco Free Business and Worksite policies
  • 24-7 Tobacco Free Public Park policies
