CDC Designates 2019 as Year of Tobacco Cessation

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) has designated 2019 as the Year of Cessation. The Year of Cessation is intended to call attention to opportunities to promote and coordinate key activities related to tobacco cessation. Each quarter throughout the year will feature various themes related to cessation, including emphasis on increasing quit attempts among smokers, establishing linkages with broader tobacco control policies, and increasing use of evidence-based cessation interventions.
