HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS      "Smokers cite a healthcare provider's
advice to quit as the most important
motivator for quitting tobacco


Tobacco use is still the leading cause of preventable death and illness in the U.S.  There are more than 190,000 smokers in Utah; nearly 80% report they would like to quit.  Of that 80% nearly 50% have made a quit attempt in the last year.  A patient who uses tobacco is more likely to have success in quitting for good when a healthcare provider advises them to do so.  Here you will find resources for your patients and tools to implement an intervention that takes less than 3 minutes to save lives!
