Advancing Health Equity in Tobacco Control through Tailored Interventions

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET

Register here

As tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable disease, tobacco-related disparities disproportionately affect populations defined by race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, mental health status, educational level, socioeconomics, and geographic location. Tailoring cessation interventions and resources to target audiences can promote engagement and promising practices to improve cessation outcomes.

Join the Nuestras Voces (Our Voices) Network and ASPIRE Network to hear about:

  • The nuts and bolts of implementing tailored interventions such as 1-855-DÉJELO YA and the Asian Smokers quitlines.
  • Amplifying resources, like the quitlines, as part of CDC/OSH Year of Cessation Campaign to increase the reach of cessation and interventions among racial/ethnic population affected by tobacco use.
  • The 2020 Tips from Former Smokers Campaign.

Presenters:

Michelle Johns, Health Communicator, CDC Office of Smoking and Health

Camille Mendaros, Program Director, ASPIRE Network

Marcela Gaitán, Program Director, Nuestras Voces Network
