This innovative partnership was initiated by a request from the Tobacco Prevention and Control Branch, NC Division of Public Health, as a result of the demand for this state-based resource from the many partners working on evidence-based tobacco use prevention and cessation in North Carolina.

The course faculty includes physicians, researchers, therapists, pharmacists, and public policy experts, all with expertise in tobacco dependence.

The primary aim of the program is to train and certify Tobacco Treatment Specialists to provide individuals in North Carolina and across the nation with the highest caliber treatment available for tobacco use and dependence. The broader goal of the TTS program is to reduce the impact of tobacco use on the local, state, and US population.
