The California Smokers’ Helpline is pleased to host this free webinar, How to Talk with Patients About Smoking Cessation and Asthma on Wednesday, May 25 from noon to 1 pm PST.

The relationship between asthma and smoking is a significant concern among health professionals. Asthma disproportionately affects smokers. Tobacco smoke is one of the most common asthma triggers and can increase the severity of attacks. Secondhand smoke is also a risk factor for new cases of asthma, especially among preschool aged children who have not already exhibited asthma symptoms. This webinar will address key strategies to help smokers with asthma to quit.

The following continuing education credits are being offered for this course: CA BBS, APA, CCAPP, CAADE, and CME.
