Mailman School of Public Health receives Manhattan Tobacco Cessation Center grant

March 21, 2005 -- The Mailman School of Public Health received a grant to create the Manhattan Tobacco Cessation Network, a program dedicated to reducing tobacco use through evidence-based smoking cessation treatment programs. The Manhattan Tobacco Cessation Network is one of 19 cessation centers statewide funded by the New York State Department of Health's Tobacco Control Program. It will be based at the Department of Sociomedical Sciences' Center for Applied Public Health (CAPH). The program represents a collaboration of the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC), NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and many of New York City's leading hospitals and healthcare networks.

Smoking is the number one cause of preventable deaths in the U.S. and New York City, yet a large number of smokers still do not get the help they need to quit. The Manhattan Tobacco Cessation Network grant will link smokers to proven treatments. "The network's primary goal is to promote systematic screening and counseling of all tobacco users. Through partnerships with leading healthcare providers we are implementing strategies that will decrease smoking rates, improve the health of New Yorkers, and save lives," says Donna Shelley, MD, MPH, principal investigator and assistant professor of clinical Sociomedical Sciences. According to Daniel Hyman, MD, chief medical officer of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Ambulatory Care Network, "This program is a critical component of our quality improvement initiatives across healthcare settings.

Co- investigators at Columbia University Medical Center are Daniel Seidman, MD, assistant clinical professor of Psychiatry and David Albert, associate clinical professor of Dental a
