Governor Brewer Shows Great Support of Our Tobacco Control Efforts

For those who could not attend the National Conference on Tobacco or Health (NCTOH), I want to bring you into the loop on Governor Brewer’s great show of support as she spoke in the opening plenary to over 2,000 attendees from across the nation.

As you can see in my letter to the Governor, we can stand proud of her participation on our behalf at NCTOH, and acknowledging Arizona as leading the nation in having the highest drop in tobacco use in 2008. In the letter, I bring special attention to the return-on-investment of having 170,000 Arizonans quit tobacco use, as the state will realize an estimated savings of $21 million per year in productivity and healthcare costs for the remainder of their lives.
