The goals for the program are eliminating exposure to environmental tobacco smoke; promoting quitting among adults and youth; preventing initiation among youth; and identifying and addressing the needs of populations affected by tobacco-use disparities.

The Greene County Health Department Community Intervention Plan includes:

  • Promoting the Illinois Tobacco Quitline 1(866)QUIT-YES / (866)784-8937 and providing the American Lung Association and the Department of Public Health with current listings of cessation classes and resources offered in the county on an ongoing basis.
  • Working with community members to prevent possession of tobacco products by minors in Greene County.
