Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in our society.
Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals; more than 50 of these chemicals are known or suspected to cause cancer in humans. The tobacco industry is responsible for nearly 500,000 deaths nationwide and over 25,000 deaths in New York each year.
The Tobacco Free Action Coalition of Ulster County is a group of community organizations and private citizens who live or work in Ulster County. This community partnership is dedicated to reducing the risk of cancer… heart disease… and other tobacco-related diseases, by lowering tobacco use through education, media and advocacy. TFAC is just one of 35 other community partnerships across NY state, dedicated to making each community a healthier place to live, work and play.
Our goals are to implement strategies and programs that will prevent youth initiation, promote quitting among adults and youth, decrease the social acceptability of tobacco use and decrease exposure to secondhand smoke.
