Our Mission

To reduce morbidity and mortality and alleviate the social and economic burden caused by commercial tobacco use in Michigan.

Our Vision

A healthier Michigan, free of all forms of commercial tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure

Our Plan

Our work is guided by the five goals of the Tobacco Section Strategic Plan:

  • identify and eliminate tobacco-related health disparities;
  • eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke;
  • promote tobacco treatment (cessation) among adults and youth;
  • prevent initiation among youth and young adults; and
  • expand and stabilize tobacco control infrastructure and funding.
