Tobacco Surveillance, Evaluation, and Data Dissemination
Tobacco is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the state and costs Wisconsinites an annual average $3.0 billion in direct health care costs and $1.6 billion in lost productivity. This project conducts surveillance research on tobacco use trends and evaluates tobacco prevention and control activities. The associated findings are used to inform the Wisconsin Tobacco Prevention and Control Program’s efforts focused on reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with tobacco use across the state.
This project is directed by Karen Palmersheim, PhD (principal investigator and epidemiologist) and is supported by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Division of Public Health, Tobacco Prevention and Control.
