The California Smokers’ Helpline and its training and technical assistance arm, the Center for Tobacco Cessation, are pleased to host this free webinar on Wednesday, January 18th from noon to 1 pm PST, Child Health Providers Helping Family Members Quit Tobacco Use, presented by Jyothi Marbin, MD and Jonathan Winickoff, MD, MPH.
Jonathan Winickoff, MD, MPH and Jyothi Marbin, MD will discuss the impact of tobacco use on families, and list ways in which child health practices can effectively treat tobacco users in a family. They will also describe how to implement the basic 3 step CEASE model in a busy office practice and share information about policies that can mitigate tobacco exposure in children.
Dr. Jonathan Winickoff is a practicing pediatrician at Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. He has training and experience in health services research, medical ethics, neurobiology, statistics and behavioral theory. His research has led to the creation of the Clinical Effort Against Secondhand Smoke Exposure (CEASE) program, now available in all 50 states for free. NIH-NCI/NIDA/AHRQ funded a national dissemination trial of CEASE and a new award from NCI is evaluating sustainability of this model in the United States. Other major research initiatives have helped describe the phenomenon of thirdhand smoke, named the health idea of the year by The New York Times. His 2010 special report in the New England Journal of Medicine outlined the social justice, legal and ethical imperative of implementing completely smoke-free public housing in the U.S. Dr. Winickoff has drafted key tobacco control policy for the AMA, AAP, and the APA and served as a scientific advisor for the CDC Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW grants), the Massachusetts Tobacco Control Program, Indiana Tobacco Control Program, Head Start, WIC, the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Institute of Medicine, and the U.S. Surgeon General through the Interagency Committee on Smoking and Health.
