Tobacco Cessation: Be Fit, Be Healthy, Be Ready

Description

According to the U.S. Surgeons General, who are responsible for the health and readiness of more than one million lives, the use of tobacco products among service members is pervasive, harmful, and an urgent public health problem. More than one-third of service members who use tobacco products started after joining. A well-known cause of cancers, heart and lung disease, and stroke, tobacco product use jeopardizes fitness and sleep quality and increases stress. In addition, tobacco product users are more likely to be injured and their injuries are slower to heal.  This keynote presentation discusses actions that can help service members quit all forms of tobacco product use, whether it is smoked, smokeless, or electronic to build a stronger, healthier and more resilient force, and improve readiness.
