From Data to Action: National, State & Local Efforts to End Menthol and Other Flavored Commercial Tobacco Product Use

CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health, in collaboration with public health partners, released a Preventing Chronic Disease Collection, “From Data to Action:  National, State & Local Efforts to End Menthol and Other Flavored Commercial Tobacco Product Use.”

This collection features a guest editorial and 9 articles that enhance our understanding of public health’s role in reducing tobacco-related diseases and deaths, highlight menthol and other flavored tobacco surveillance data, and provide examples of state and local activities implemented in this area.  The collection shows public health’s role in education communities about evidence-based interventions, including policies, to create healthier and more equitable communities, particularly among those who have been burdened by menthol and flavored tobacco.

Sharing evidence about tobacco interventions that work can help states, tribes, localities, and communities promote and implement equitable policies and resolutions, systems, and environmental changes that can prevent tobacco initiation and support individuals who are ready to quit.

The complete collection is available here:
