Combating Tobacco Use in Military and Veteran Populations

In this new report, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations on how to reduce tobacco initiation and encourage cessation in both military and veteran populations. The report, Combating Tobacco in Military and Veteran Populations, concludes that to prevent tobacco initiation and encourage cessation, both the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration should implement comprehensive tobacco-control programs.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 26, 2009 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
