Information for You

In Vermont, diabetes is a serious health condition that affects over 40,000 adults, and is one of the leading causes of death resulting from a chronic disease.

Vermont has a long history of passing state laws and local policies to protect people from secondhand smoke, to stop youth from starting to use tobacco, and to lower the prevalence of tobacco use.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Increasing physical activity and access to healthy diet choices are important in reducing the impact of chronic disease.

Investigators both in the U.S. and abroad have shown relationships between short- and long-term exposure to air pollution and the increased risk of heart attack and other forms of heart disease.

Public Health Statistics conducts surveillance of the burden of tobacco use among Vermonters and creates data reports to assist the Vermont Tobacco Control Program in making data-driven decisions for tobacco prevention and control.
