Webinar: Tobacco Use Burden in Maine – Past, Present and Future

12.19.23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Presenter: Tim Cowan, MSPH; Director, Community Health Surveillance and Evaluation at MaineHealth

1.0 CHES & 1.0 CME Credits available with attendance of live webinar

In this presentation, we will examine how the prevalence of tobacco/nicotine dependence in Maine compares to other regions in the country- both within demographic groups as well as within counties that have similar socio-economic and demographic profiles as counties in Maine.  We will also examine changes in tobacco use over time.  Through all of these lenses, we will assess successes with reducing the burden of tobacco among Maine residents as well as identify current challenges and opportunities for future efforts.
