Utah Cancer Summit: Utah's Tobacco Burden and Potential Policy Solutions
Join us for the 2019 ACS CAN Utah Cancer Summit: Utah's Tobacco Burden and Potential Policy Solutions.
Tobacco use remains the number one cause of preventable death in Utah. $542 million in annual health care costs in Utah can be attributed to smoking. Join us to hear about the impact that tobacco use has on our state, the latest data showing tobacco use among Utah’s youth, and learn ways in which evidence-based public policy solutions can impact tobacco use in Utah.
