Smoking is the leading actual "cause of death" in the U.S.; and these deaths are preventable. Science-based programs to help individuals stop smoking are important interventions for public health and the healthcare delivery community. The Cooper/Clayton Method is being implemented by every health department and the Kentucky Cancer Program throughout the state. As the former Director of Cancer Control in Kentucky, it is apparent to me that the Cooper/Clayton program is the most popular and respected cancer control initiative in Kentucky.
