·         Increase access to quitting services in Hamilton County.

·         Prevent initial use of tobacco and nicotine products in youth and young adults.

·         Identify and eliminate tobacco-related health disparities.

·         Protect Hamilton County residents from the harmful effects of second and third-hand smoke and vape emissions.

·         Decrease the culture of social acceptability of tobacco and nicotine products in public spaces.
