Two weeks ago, the Network was asked to offer some recommendations of LGBT resources for CDC’s health equity users’ guides. This was an exciting opportunity which we were glad to take on! We were asked to provide a list of websites, Some Culturally-Tailored, Evidence-Based Cessation Programs, and Some Promising Practices to Promote Cessation Among Certain Populations. We came up with quite a few key resources and thought you all might be interested to see what we sent but also for future reference.
