Community Education

Department of Behavioral Sciences and Social Medicine provides community education through the following:

  • Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training: 3-Day Foundation Course: The AHEC Program at the FSU College of Medicine has developed a three-day training which provides an in-depth understanding of tobacco dependence as well as the essential science-based treatment tools necessary to help smokers achieve freedom from tobacco use. It is one of only 18 programs in the US to be accredited by the Association for the Treatment of Tobacco Use and Dependence (ATTUD). Additionally, the training offers an optional 4-hour Quit Smoking NOW (QSN) Facilitator training on the fourth day. The training is targeted to health professionals who treat people for tobacco dependence such as health academics, health educators, or others with an interest in tobacco and health.
