Courage to Quit Program Leaders

Courage to Quit® is an adult smoking cessation program that is consistent with evidence-based smoking treatments and can be delivered in multiple settings. Courage to Quit is led by health educators, community health workers, social workers and other health professionals who have completed our one day training workshop.
