Health Department Launches Community Survey on Tobacco and Smoke-Free Policies

While tobacco use and smoking rates have declined in Lucas County, the problem still exists in our community. The Ohio Department of Health reports that 21 percent of Lucas County Adults (18+) are current smokers.

To reduce the number of tobacco users, state and local health agencies across Ohio are working together on policy implementation to reduce tobacco use and initiation among youth and adults. The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department's Tobacco Prevention Program is conducting an online survey to gather community input on tobacco (including electronic cigarettes) and smoke-free policies in Lucas County.

The feedback from the community will allow the Tobacco Prevention Program to gauge community approval and empower the program to move forward on improving the health of Lucas County residents.

The survey is available on the Health Department’s website at: http://www.lucascountyhealth.com/ and can be accessed directly: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TLCHDTobacco For additional information, please contact Safa Ibrahim, Tobacco Prevention Program Coordinator, at 419-213-4120.
