Significance: According to the Surgeon General’s report, “Tobacco use remains the number one cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States. Approximately 34 million American adults currently smoke cigarettes, with most of them smoking daily. Nearly all adult smokers have been smoking since adolescence. More than two-thirds of smokers say they want to quit, and every day thousands try to quit. But because the nicotine in cigarettes is highly addictive, it takes most smokers multiple attempts to quit for good…the evidence is sufficient to infer that proactive quit-line counseling, when provided alone or in combina¬tion with cessation medications, increases smoking cessation…and the evidence is sufficient to infer that tobacco quit-¬lines are an effective population-based approach to motivate quit attempts and increase smoking cessation.” https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/2020-cessation-sgr-full-report.pdf As of 2015, 17% of pregnant women who smoked reported quitting smoking during the first trimester of their pregnancy, according to the National Health Interview Survey. This proportion is short of the HP2020 target of 30%. https://www.healthypeople.gov/2020/data-search/Search-the-Data#objid=5364. 1-800-QUIT-NOW quit-lines provide free and confidential services in English and Spanish, and translation for other languages, by a trained quit coach to stop smoking. Quit coaches connect callers with quit-smoking resources through the caller’s community programs, and callers may be able to receive free nicotine replacement therapy. http://makesmokinghistory.org/quit-now/what-is-the-helpline/

ESM 14.2.2 Number of ambassadors recruited (Tennessee)

Measure Status: Active

Evidence Level: There is limited research in the evidence base for this NPM to support this strategy.
