Smoking in Kentucky

by Laura Ellis on August 25, 2010

It affects twenty-six percent of our youth and around the same percentage of adults – including twenty-four and a half percent of pregnant women. It’s tobacco use, and Kentucky ranks the absolute worst in the nation for our rate of adult smoking. Are these numbers as dismal as they sound, or have they actually gotten better? What are the most effective ways to quit, and the health benefits? Join us this Thursday when we talk about smoking in Kentucky.

I am the Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist for UKHealthCare in Lexington and an assistant professor in the College of Nursing. I want to commend you for the resources you have made available regarding tobacco use in Kentucky, a major public health problem. I would like to suggest another website link to the Tobacco Policy Research Program at the University of Kentucky. This website: http://www.mc.uky.edu/tobaccopolicy/KentuckyDataReports/ contains a lot of additional data regarding tobacco use and cessation efforts in Kentucky which you listeners might find helpful.
I look forward to listening in to your program today.
