Resources and Materials

Tobacco use is a pediatric disease and most adult tobacco users initiate use during adolescence. Initiation is often connected to parental/peer tobacco use, exposure to tobacco imagery in movies and media, and targeted marketing of tobacco products to youth. Secondhand tobacco exposure is another critical health concern as it can affect a family physically and developmentally. 

 

Pediatricians play a critical role in addressing tobacco use and exposure with children, adolescents and families.
