Oswego Health lists tobacco use as 1 of its 3 selected prevention agenda items in its state-required community service plan (CSP). The CSP outlines Oswego Health's goals and the programs to be undertaken to reduce the community's smoking rate, as well as other health risk factors. A report conducted by the University of Wisconsin/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation reported in 2012 that 33 percent of Oswego County residents smoke. The New York state rate for smoking is 18 percent.
