Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program, a nationally accredited smoking cessation certificate-preparation program, will host its four-day training courses in March and June 2020.

Training will be held March 16-19 in Durham, NC, and June 8-11 in Asheville, NC. Participants earn 27.25 hours of continuing medical education (CME) credits.

“Duke-UNC TTS is anticipating an exciting year as we announce new trainings in Durham and Asheville,” said James Davis, MD, Co-Director of the Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program. “E-cigarettes are dominating the news. With the rapid rise in e-cigarette use and the emergence of an aggressive lung injury syndrome, we are poised to provide training in how to better manage the e-cigarette crisis.”

Program Co-Director Adam Goldstein, MD, added, “Beyond teaching the harms of tobacco, the Duke-UNC TTS Training Program offers instruction on complex medication management and advanced behavioral approaches, as well as guidance on how to develop a successful tobacco treatment program within any clinic or health system.”

Duke-UNC TTS was established in 2016 and offers location-based trainings several times each year and includes the latest research and evidence-based methods that increase the impact of each provider and public initiative.
