dc.description.abstract<p>As a consequence of limited access to health information, Deaf and hard of hearing (Deaf/ hh)’ individuals may be at higher risk for health complications and tobacco-related diseases. To address this issue, Communication Service for the Deaf (CSD) of Oklahoma sought funding from the Oklahoma Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust to implement the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Tobacco Use and Cessation Program. The five-year project began in 2006; it was the first major health education initiative in the state that focused on the Deaf community. Prevalence rates and demographic information were collected regarding tobacco use among Deaf/hh participants. In addition, tobacco education and cessation programs were provided, and the changes in participants' knowledge and attitudes toward tobacco use were tracked over a three-year period. At the end of the project, in-depth interviews were conducted to gather additional information from tobacco users. This article provides prevalence and demographic information regarding Deaf/hh individuals' tobacco use in Oklahoma and outcomes of educational programs.</p>
