World No Tobacco Day

Thursday, May 31st marks the 2018 World No Tobacco Day, a day meant to encourage people to quit smoking, cut back on tobacco usage and ultimately spread the negative impacts of tobacco to the public. This year Oral Health Group wanted to make it easier to pass along the message! You can share this page with your social media followers, in an email, or print it off to encourage people in your life and practice to understand the effects of tobacco. Below you will find news items from the last three years to discuss with your patients.

For more information on the day, visit the official World Health Organization page and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention page.
