How can we help cancer patients quit tobacco? This new video on the Cancer Center Cessation Initiative shows how NCI is working to research and apply the best answers to that question.

Launched by NCI in 2017 as part of the Cancer MoonshotSM, the Cancer Center Cessation Initiative aims to advance tobacco cessation efforts in cancer centers across the country. The video interviews the initiative’s leaders and representatives from funded cancer centers, who talk about their mission and how they are implementing tobacco cessation treatment in practice. Our very own, Dr. Chen appears to describe the program at the Siteman Cancer Center.
