Advancing novel population health strategies to address tobacco treatment inequities.
This July, CA Quits held a webinar California Tobacco Flavor Ban: Addressing Health Equity and How to Engage Priority Populations to Quit Tobacco. We had the opportunity to learn from our partners Amplify! African American Coordinating Center, the Latino Coordinating Center, and the Statewide Pacific Islander Asian American Resource and Coordinating Center (SPARC) on engaging communities to quit commercial tobacco products.
A statewide project for health systems change to integrate tobacco treatment with a focus on health systems serving the diverse safety net population covered by Medi-Cal. Our overall goals are to 1) Develop cessation referral systems, 2) Support quality improvement projects, 3) Establish multi-level collaborations to increase Californian’s access to tobacco treatment services, and 4) Promote strategies for population health and health equity.
CA Quits is funded by the California Tobacco Control Branch at the California Department of Public Health
