The Behavioral Health and Wellness Program (BHWP) at the University of
Colorado, in collaboration with National Jewish Health, will host a webinar

populations, as well as to provide recommendations on how to increase the
reach and engagement of the Quitline among these populations. This informative
webinar will describe the project and outline the findings and recommendations
with implications for the Quitline community, tobacco control movement, and
rural health practitioners.
