WHAT WE DO
Smoking remains a leading cause of death and disease in the U.S., and yields billions of dollars in health care costs annually. JSI’s Vermont office supports agencies in tobacco prevention and control efforts at the individual, community and societal levels. We provide expertise in tobacco-related research and evaluation, data analysis, strategic planning, technical assistance and communications.
