NCI Recovery Act Web Site Highlights NCI’s Smoking Cessation Program

The NCI Recovery Act Web site has added a new article about NCI’s smoking cessation program and describes how Recovery Act funding has allowed NCI to hire staff and expand services. Because smoking is a leading cause of cancer and continues to be a major public health issue, one of NCI’s imperatives is to provide evidence-based interventions and new approaches to help smokers successfully quit. With the recent Recovery Act award, NCI will be able to evaluate and improve its smoking cessation services.

NCI’s Cancer Information Service Contact Center has been helping smokers quit since the 1980s. Cessation resources, including NCI’s Smoking Quitline 1-877-44U-QUIT (1-877-448-7848), were developed by the Office of Communications and Education, with content provided by NCI’s Tobacco Control Research Branch.
