The largest adult health study ever conducted in Missouri is underway across the state. The topic? Tobacco use and the diseases it causes.
The Missouri Foundation for Health is providing close to $2 million in funding for the telephone survey, which is expected to include more than 52,000 people.
Missouri Foundation for Health program officer Matthew Kuhlenbeck says the survey is a follow-up to a similar study conducted in 2007.
