Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Program
Did You Know? In Ohio – over half of all high school students have used at least one type of tobacco product!
In 2016, 15.5% of youth between 12 and 17 years of age were smokers. Of 48 tobacco retailers in Perry County, 7 of them are within walking distance of a school.
The Perry County Health Department is working with kids between the ages of 12 and 18 encouraging them to speak out against tobacco use among their friends and prevent kids their age from ever even starting to use tobacco.
