OHSU researcher co-authors National State-By-State Report Card on women and smoking; Oregon flunks

received a grade of Satisfactory Minus. Utah ranked first overall, although even its grade was only Satisfactory Minus. Utah is followed by Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Connecticut, District of Columbia, California, Colorado, Maryland and New Jersey. The 10 states that ranked the lowest were Nevada, Kentucky, West Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee, Indiana, Oklahoma, Ohio, Missouri and Wyoming. The nation received an overall grade of Fail.

How do we reach the national goals set for women and smoking?

The best advice for women is to never start. Then, we need to make it more expensive, which has been shown to prevent young girls from smoking. If you smoke, you need to stop as soon as possible. The state as a whole needs more cessation programs, more insurance coverage, more bans on work-site smoking, more smoke-free homes and more health care providers talking to their patients about how best to quit smoking, Berlin said.
