In the last 50 years, smoking rates across the U.S. have dropped by more than half. But progress lags behind in certain places and among certain groups.

Highlights of the virtual event include:

  • The release of new NKY data on topics such as tobacco use, secondhand smoke, the community culture of tobacco use and cessation.
  • An overview of local strategies to address tobacco use and secondhand smoke that we know work.
  • A Q&A panel with NKY leaders to share their thoughts about the data and current efforts to address tobacco use with speakers from the Bracken County Health Department, Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and Northern Kentucky Health Department.
