Seton Health releases statement on Surgeon General's tobacco report

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. – A local hospital released a statement on Monday regarding the new Surgeon General's report on smoking and health.

The Center for Smoking Cessation at Seton Health said the "War on smoking is far from over." Seton health collaborated with local tobacco control advocates to draw attention to tobacco use in the Capital Region.

Last week, the Surgeon General released the "32nd Report on Smoking and Health", which stated new findings on how smoking affects a person's health.

"It is hard to believe that 50 years later, we are still fighting to stop this killer in its tracks," said Erin Sinisgalli, manager of the Center for Smoking Cessation at Seton Health, a program of St. Peter's Health Partners.

The program with Seton Health aims to help patients quit smoking. Smokers who wish to quit are asked to call the NYS Smokers' Quitline at 1-866NY-QUITS.
