Launch of New Online Resource: BeTobaccoFree.gov
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has created a new resource to educate people about the harmful effects of tobacco use. The new website, BeTobaccoFree.gov, brings together information on tobacco products, the health hazards of tobacco use, quitting smoking, and more from across HHS, including NCI.
The content is accessible on multiple platforms, including smartphones and tablets. The site also features “Say It—Share It,” a social media dashboard that provides updates from HHS tobacco-related social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Tumblr.
