IDPH offers free nicotine replacement
During the entire month of June, Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) is offering four weeks of free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in the form of patches and gum to Iowa smokers who choose to make a quit attempt using Quitline Iowa. Quitline Iowa offers tobacco cessation coaching services over the telephone or the Internet, 24 hours a day.
“Data suggests the majority of smokers want to quit. We are excited to offer them extra support to increase the likelihood they quit successfully,” said IDPH Director Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks. “Smart, efficient budgeting is allowing us to provide this support for the first time in years. Historically, Quitline Iowa has experienced large increases in call volume when free NRT is provided.”
Research has shown that quitting smoking at any age offers health benefits.
