Cigarette smoking is more common among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people than almost any other racial or ethnic group in the United States. To support this population, the American Indian Commercial Tobacco Program was established in 2015 by National Jewish Health, in collaboration with state quitlines, members of the American Indian community, and commercial tobacco control experts. As of July 2023, this innovative, evidence-based program has been integrated within the Maine QuitLink, allowing individuals to access this service and provides an opportunity for engagement with the American Indian community. Join this informational webinar to learn more about the American Indian Commercial Tobacco Program and the implementation of this resource in Maine.
