PUBLIC HEALTH COALITION PRAISES SMOKING CESSATION PROGRAM

A smoking cessation pilot project under development for Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) state employees throughout Texas won the support of the Public Health Coalition. TMA is a charter member of the coalition. “For the 2009 session of the Texas Legislature, the coalition’s list of ‘legislative asks’ included funding for a comprehensive, statewide tobacco prevention and cessation program,” coalition Chair Herminia Palacio, MD, wrote to Commissioner Tom Suehs. “Thus we strongly support pilot initiatives such as the one HHSC is creating.”
