The Delta Health Alliance

Tobacco Cessation

Now operating in six counties, our Tobacco-Free Coalition project has been recognized for Exemplary Service by the Mississippi Department of Health. Our staff work directly with schools and community organizations to prevent the initiation of tobacco use among youth, reduce exposure to secondhand smoke, promote tobacco cessation services, and eliminate tobaccorelated disparities. As a result of its outreach program, smoke-free ordinances have been adopted in the Delta municipalities of Coahoma, Friars Point, Clarksdale, Jonestown, Lyon, Marks, Sledge, Tutwiler, Sumner, Charleston, Beulah, Drew, Moorhead, Duncan, Alligator, and Indianola, as well as Coahoma County and Delta State University in Cleveland.
