• Ask and Act Tobacco Cessation Program

    There's strong evidence that advising your patients to quit tobacco and nicotine can more than double cessation success rates.

Ask and Act, the AAFP's tobacco cessation program, encourages you to Ask all patients about tobacco use and Act to help them quit. With a grant from the CVS Health Foundation, the Academy has developed free tobacco cessation resources for members, including a number of tools that focus on e-cigarettes.
