Research to Reality Cyber-Seminar: Reaching Smokers in the Age of Mobile Technology: Resources, Networks, and Messaging

Registration Confirmation - R2R Cyber-Seminar: State Cancer Profiles

Reaching Smokers in the Age of Mobile Technology: Resources, Networks, and Messaging

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014, 2:00 p.m.  3:00 p.m. ET

As of 2014, every US state and Canadian province has a toll-free tobacco quitline as a resource to treat tobacco dependence. The March National Cancer Institute (NCI) Research to Reality cyber seminar will examine how networks of quitlines interact and share innovations in quitline practices. We will also explore how text messaging may be a most promising method for reaching a new generation of smokers.
 
Dr. Jessie Saul, contributor to Mapping Tobacco Quitlines in North America: Signaling Pathways to Improve Treatment. will share findings of the network practices and interconnectivity of the North American Quitline Consortium (NAQC) and how these findings can help inform local practice. Ms. Anathalie Jean-Charles from the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS, Quebec Division) will then share the results of a text message based smoking cessation pilot launched to target young adult smokers.  Dr. Saul, and Ms. Jean-Charles will share then their perspectives on the adoption and implementation practices of telecommunication platforms and networks.

The final part of the webinar will be dedicated to Q&A and discussion and will offer an opportunity to engage with the presenters, and also to share your own experiences and thoughts.
