Smoking Cessation Resources

In our discussions around the state it’s evident that many employers struggle with smoking and tobacco cessation. EmployersLikeMe recently had discussions with our friend Scott Harbin at Pfizer about employer resources for smoking cessation.  Scott was nice enough to share several resources.

Go to our Resource tab and then look in the “Smoking Cessation” section.  We have several white papers by Milliman and there’s a slide deck on a very neat cessation app called Plan Q.  The Plan Q app is free and it is meant to augment your other programs.  If you have any interest in Plan Q  please contact Scott at moc.rezifpnull@nibrah.s.w
