|New Links Added to Important Links Section|
We have added two new links to our important links section. We have added a link to Asema gikinoo-amaagewin, and the Center for Public Health Systems Science. Click here to learn more.
Asema gikinoo-amaagewin means "traditional teaching on tobacco" in Ojibwe.
Asema gikinoo-amaagewin is a group of people working together to protect people in Lac du Flambeau from the dangers of commercial tobacco and secondhand smoke.
Four of the five leading causes of death for American Indians in Wisconsin are tobacco-related and tribal communities are some of the only places left in Wisconsin where people are exposed to the dangers of secondhand smoke at work.
Launched in 2001 as the Center for Tobacco Policy Research, the new Center for Public Health Systems Science’s innovative research helps create a better understanding of how policies and organizational systems affect public health problems. The Center translates research results to inform chronic disease prevention policy and improve public health practice, leading to healthier communities.
