Posted by: Natalia Gromov
We would like to remind you that the PPP webinar titled "States Advance Quitline Sustainability" is scheduled for August 21 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. (ET).
As participants of the NAQC public-private partnership initiative, eleven states have worked for over two years to expand tobacco cessation coverage and sustainability of their state quitlines. This webinar presentation will provide a snapshot of the different foci and strategies employed by five states. North Carolina will share their strategies for engaging a county government, a not-for-profit and a large health plan in contracting for quitline services. Massachusetts will present on how they leveraged disparities among cessation coverage to improve coverage for all state employees. Kentucky will share how they expanded access to NRT through employer contracts with the quitline vendor and their long-term strategy for cost-sharing quitline services. Arizona will share how they dedicated staff for their partnership efforts and the focus of staff’s work. And, Texas will share their experience working with the state’s Business Group on Health and collaborations with Community Programs.
