Tobacco treatment specialists (TTSs) are professionals who possess the skills, knowledge and training to provide effective, evidence-based interventions for tobacco dependence. In other words, these individuals have a wide range of expertise that can help you quit nicotine addiction. The Heart Network congratulates the following organizations and people for helping to build tobacco treatment capacity in our communities:
- Citizen Advocates: Michele Sauve, BSN-RN, Amanda Baker and Emily Gokey
