The NYS Smokers’ Quitline (1-866-NY-QUITS) is hosting a webinar for healthcare providers called Supporting Patients with Disabilities in Becoming Tobacco Free. Its goal is to improve clinician understanding of common practices and barriers that impact their relationship with people they work with who have a disability and use commercial tobacco products.

New York State residents with disabilities exhibit a higher prevalence of smoking, according to the Quitline.  It also says this population “is more than twice as likely to develop chronic conditions often attributed to smoking, such as cardiovascular disease, COPD and diabetes.”
