December 4, 2019 – Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program announced new training dates for the first half of 2020. Training will be held March 16-19 in Durham, NC, at the Emerge Center, and June 8-11 in Asheville, NC (location to be determined).
"Duke-UNC TTS is anticipating an exciting year as we announce new trainings in Durham and Asheville," said James Davis, MD, Co-Director of the Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program. "E-cigarettes are dominating the news. With the rapid rise in e-cigarette use and the emergence of an aggressive lung injury syndrome, we are poised to provide training in how to better manage the e-cigarette crisis."
Program Co-Director Adam Goldstein, MD, added, "Beyond teaching the harms of tobacco, the Duke-UNC TTS Training Program offers instruction on complex medication management and advanced behavioral approaches, as well as guidance on how to develop a successful tobacco treatment program within any clinic or health system."
