With help from researchers at the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, the Ohio Department of Health is trying out a new approach to smoking cessation that it hopes will help the estimated 70 percent of smokers who say they want to quit, but don’t know how.<br /><br />In April, a team led by Barry Oches, senior research associate at the Voinovoich School, won a $280,000 grant from ODH to implement the program in four Appalachian counties in southeastern Ohio. Over the next year, the team will train healthcare providers in Lawrence, Scioto, Gallia, and Ross counties to talk with their patients about smoking and connect them with resources that will help them kick the habit.<br /><br />“We’re hoping to tap into that 70 percent who want to quit but feel there’s nothing out there to help them or think they will be mocked by fellow smokers,” Oches said.<br /><br />Specifically, the Smoke-Free Families of Southeast Ohio Project targets women of child-bearing age, between the ages of 18 and 44, in hopes of addressing the harm smoking presents to developing fetuses and to children.<br />
