The fight against smoking, chewing, and vaping just became a little fiercer.
From April 4-10, front-line health workers refined their health education skills via the online course Supporting Tobacco Cessation.
The course was sponsored by CHWTraining, a health care-focused division of Boston-based educational company Talance, Inc., and was produced in observance of National Public Health Week and offered at no charge. The weeklong, interactive course was facilitated by tobacco-cessation health educator Mary Etna Haac. She guided participants through practical tips and strategies they can use in their efforts to help more people quit or reduce using tobacco.
