Mayo Clinic Tobacco Quitline to provide Minnesota QUITPLAN Helpline service

ROCHESTER, Minn. -- Mayo Clinic Tobacco Quitline was recently awarded a two-year contract by the Minnesota Partnership for Action Against Tobacco (MPAAT) to provide tobacco treatment services available through its QUITPLAN Helpline for Minnesotans, effective Dec. 15, 2005. The Helpline is one of several QUITPLAN stop-smoking services. Since the Helpline was established in 2001, more than 39,000 Minnesotans have called for support.

"We are pleased to be collaborating with Mayo Clinic, whose Nicotine Dependence Center has been a leader in tobacco cessation since 1988," said Michael Vekich, MPAAT board chair.

Mayo Clinic's expertise will allow us to continue to provide the best stop-smoking services available to Minnesotans who want to quit tobacco use."

Based in Rochester, Mayo Clinic Tobacco Quitline receives clinical oversight, training, research and consultative support from the staff of the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center (NDC), a leader in the treatment of nicotine addiction.

Mayo Clinic Tobacco Quitline is available to 14 million people nationwide through health plans, corporations and state quit lines, targeting cigarette, pipe and cigar smokers, as well as smokeless tobacco users. Mayo Clinic Tobacco Quitline is administered by MMSI, a Mayo health company.

"Telephone-based services are a convenient, confidential and effective means to access tobacco-cessation assistance," said William Litchy, M.D., MMSI medical director. "Mayo Clinic Tobacco Quitline is a successful, professional program for state residents who are thinking about quitting tobacco or who are ready to stop. Our affiliation with the NDC allows us to
