Do Ask, Do Tell: A Practical Approach to Smoking Cessation
The CS2Day (Cease Smoking Today) Tobacco Cessation Training is a CE Webinar program being offered at no cost to educate
clinicians and other health care professionals on how to become more involved in tobacco cessation counseling. The training
