Smoking and Tobacco Use

John H. Mulroy Civic Center, 9th Floor
421 Montgomery Street, Syracuse, NY 13202
Phone (315) 435-3280

Tobacco use remains the single most preventable cause of death in the United States, accounting for more than 480,000 deaths each year. An estimated 41,000 of these tobacco-related deaths are the result of secondhand smoke exposure. More deaths are caused each year by tobacco use than by all deaths from HIV/AIDS, illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides, and murders combined.

Effective July 1, 2014, tobacco control programming for the region that includes Onondaga, Oswego, and Cayuga counties has been transitioned to Integrated Community Planning (ICP), an agency based in Oswego, NY. For more information on local tobacco control issues, click on the link above, or call Christina Wilson at 315-343-2344, ext. 19.
