CommuniCare was one of 10 organizations in the country to be selected to participate in a Community of Practice focusing on Tobacco & Cancer Control hosted by the National Behavioral Health Network. CCI will be consulting with national experts on the topic areas as well as engaging in other learning exercises as part of this initiative over the next eight to nine months. As part of this opportunity, we have presented a national webinar to offer insights on steps to adjust policies on tobacco in behavioral health. Listen to a recording of the presentation
CCI is proud to be part of this initiative and looks forward to continuing as a lead and expert in tobacco cessation and organizational policy change in Connecticut.
