AHEC Tobacco Training and Cessation (ATTAC) Program

What is ATTAC?

ATTAC brings health professions students together to learn about tobacco/nicotine dependency, prevention, and cessation issues.

Students who participate in this program benefit from an increased understanding of tobacco use, the pharmacology of nicotine, and drug delivery systems; increased awareness of the effects of tobacco and nicotine use; improved knowledge of how to help patients change unhealthy behaviors; and develop or enhance skills for dealing with dependent/addicted patients.

ATTAC is divided into two (2) components.

  • Complete two (2) Online Modules
  • Attend an in-person or virtual presentation. The presentations are provided by knowledgeable and engaging speakers in their field of expertise.
