The Utah Tobacco Prevention Task Force advances solutions generated by Utah physician, healthcare, and public health partnerships to eliminate tobacco use in Utah:

  • Prioritizing and tailoring solutions to Utah
  • Task Force Information Sheet

Implementing solutions

The Utah Tobacco Prevention Task Force seeks to implement solutions generated from partnerships between Utah healthcare providers and organizations and communities.

Sustainable solutions will be tailored and implemented by

  • Healthcare provider guided adaptation and prioritization of tobacco solutions for Utah’s needs
  • Expert medical review of tobacco treatment guidelines to meet the needs of Utah physicians, medical practices, healthcare venues, and communities.
  • Disseminating state-of-the-art recommendations through partnerships with healthcare provider, public health, and community organizations.
