HHS launches BeTobaccoFree.gov Health and Human Services (HHS) today announced the launch of BeTobaccoFree.gov, a comprehensive website providing one-stop access to the best and most upto-date tobacco-related information from across its agencies. This consolidated resource includes general information on tobacco, federal and state laws and policies, health statistics, and evidence-based methods on how to quit. “Tobacco use continues to be the leading cause of premature and preventable death in the United States,” said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “BeTobaccoFree.gov builds upon the Obama administration’s commitment to help tobacco users quit and prevent children from starting to use tobacco products.” BeTobaccoFree.gov uses responsive design, making information accessible anywhere, anytime on any platform, from smart phone to tablet to desktop. The Web site’s unique social media dashboard, “Say it – Share it,” constantly provides real time updates from HHS tobacco-related social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Infographics, Podcasts and Tumblr. “HHS is committed to using technology to help Americans lead longer healthier lives,” said Assistant Secretary for Health Howard K. Koh, M.D., M.P.H. “Today, as we commemorate the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout, the launch of BeTobaccoFree.gov demonstrates our dedication to reducing the harms from tobacco use. Regardless of age, those who stop smoking SNAP & EBT READY! and using tobacco can substantially reduce their risk for disease.” During the last three years, HHS increased efforts to reduce tobacco use by coordinating across its agencies, to provide Americans with access to available cessation and education tools. A few key accomplishments include: • As a result of the Affordable Care Act, most private health insurance plans must now cover without cost-sharing tobacco use screening and cessation interventions for tobacco users. • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched “Tips From Former Smokers,” a national education campaign that featured former smokers living with smoking-related diseases and disabilities. • WANTED • Old Vehicles • Farm Machinery • Scrap Iron PAYING TOP DOLLAR Call 402- 841-1060 For Price PROFESSIONAL CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING & DISASTER RESTORATION SERVICE Satisfying customers for 43 years!
