Florida AHEC Network

THE FLORID AAHEC TOBACCO TRAINING AND CESSATION PROGRAM

The Florida Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Tobacco Training and Cessation Program was established in 2007 and has completed its first decade of offering services throughout the state. With a current annual legislative appropriation of over $13.6 million, the AHEC Network, which is comprised of AHEC Programs at the University of Florida, University of Miami, University of South Florida, Nova Southeastern University, and Florida State University, and their 10 affiliated regional Centers, provides tobacco cessation services in all 67 counties and training for current and future health professionals to prepare them to treat tobacco dependency in a myriad of clinical and community settings. 

The overall goal of the AHEC Tobacco Training and Cessation Program is to strengthen the capacity of Florida’s healthcare system to deliver effective tobacco use treatment and cessation services throughout the state to effect institutional systems change. This goal embraces fundamental premises supported by the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

The AHEC Tobacco Training and Cessation Program conforms to both the letter and the spirit of Florida Statute 381.84 (Comprehensive Statewide Tobacco Education and Use Prevention Program): training and cessation programs consistent with USPHS Guideline and CDC Best Practices; training programs that target a wide variety of health professions; cessation programs that focus on adults and on special populations; and programs that are consistently implemented in every county in the state.
