The Grayson County Health Department's Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program is guided by four goals:
Preventing the initiation of tobacco use among young people,
Promoting cessation among young people and adults,
Eliminating non-smoker's exposure to environmental tobacco smokes and,
Identifying and eliminating the disparities related to tobacco and its effects on different population groups.
The program's mission is to reduce preventable and premature deaths attributed to tobacco use by implementing programs to decrease tobacco use and exposure to tobacco smoke.
