Public-Private Partnership Initiative: States Identified for Technical Assistance

Wednesday, January 11, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

We are pleased to announce that NAQC will be providing in-depth technical assistance on developing public-private partnerships to nine states.The initiative, supported by CDC, is designed to provide states with the resources, tools and technical assistance to advance health plan coverage for cessation services, including quit line.

As a participating state, each state will have access to one-on-one technical assistance, tailored resources, as well as support from other states through monthly facilitated discussions. To help meet the need of states requesting these services, two discussion groups have been identified based on the state’s individual needs. The groups are as follows:

Group I: Florida, Arizona, Utah, Maryland, Massachusetts and Nevada

Group II: Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Kentucky

The state’s lead staff has committed to participate in monthly facilitated discussions, attend each session of the 3-part webinar series, and dedicate at least 8 hours a week to actively advance the work in their state. The webinar series, available to all NAQC members, will provide the framework for developing cost-sharing partnerships.

For more information about the initiative or resources available to all members, please contact Deb Osborne at or 800-398-5489 ext.705.
