Helping Smokers Quit Report: Register for Dec. 7th Webinar

Monday, November 14, 2011  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

On December 7, 2011, the American Lung Association will be releasing its fourth annual Helping Smokers Quit: Tobacco Cessation Coverage 2011 report. This report provides an overview of smoking cessation services and treatments offered in each state by Medicaid, Medicare, state employee plans, quitlines and private insurance. It also discusses past and future federal government actions to help smokers quit.

This year, the report will feature a list of the Ten Most Quit-Friendly States and Ten Least Quit-Friendly States. The report is a great resource to focus media and policymaker attention on cessation coverage policies. You can read last year’s report here.

You are invited to join us for a Webinar on the release date. We will discuss the findings, focus of this year’s report, and 2011 trends. Please share this invitation with staff, volunteers and tobacco control partners you think would be interested.
