IDHA proposes to educate dental healthcare providers about tobacco cessation using a team approach to tobacco cessation for implementation within the dental healthcare practice setting. The training will also serve as a means to build a network of dental healthcare professionals who will become more involved in local and statewide smoke free air efforts and work closely with the local coalitions. IDHA will build the Quit Now Indiana Preferred Provider Network; identify champions within the dental profession; and provide short term and long term assessment of the continuing education program.

Linda Bundick firstname.lastname@example.org
IPHA is simply serving as the lead agency/fiscal agent for this grant which is a continuation of two initiatives Tobacco Prevention has previously funded. Bringing Indiana Along (BIA) program, a statewide initiative that targets the mental health population. BIA provides technical assistance and to mental health/substance abuse treatment centers and providers across Indiana on integrating tobacco cessation into treatment and on adopting tobacco-free grounds policies. This is a leading emerging issue in tobacco control, and this program helps mental health consumers and providers change their attitudes, knowledge and behavior on tobacco use. Women of child bearing age and pregnant women in Indiana are a disparately-affected and hard to reach population as it relates to tobacco use. This grant provides infrastructure to continue the facilitation of a statewide coalition, Promoting Smokefree Pregnancy in Indiana (PSPI). The project provides education to statewide organizations, that care for pregnant women and will educate physicians and other healthcare providers on the tobacco use treatment (ask, advise and refer). PSPI will reach out to a minimum of 13 counties with the highest prenatal smoking rates and provide provider training, education and resources on addiction to tobacco by pregnant women.

The Ruth Lilly Health Education Center will provide educational programs to middle and high school students in a hands-on, thought-provoking, high-impact visual model with lively discussion. RLHEC will target school systems that do not currently have a tobacco-free campus policy. There will be specific emphasis on teachers, staff and parents to include a new initiative, Lunch & Learn, where the RLHEC will provide required trainings to teachers and staff members. RLHEC has also proposed up to three parent educational programs. RLHEC will connect with the local coalition coordinators to inform them of all school and teacher participants.

The proposal funds Teen Institute, in conjunction with Rhinos Youth Media Center, to organize a team of youth leaders from throughout the state to expand and enhance the Voice movement by formalizing an integrated Voice social media infrastructure. The team will develop content that is shared via the social media infrastructure, conduct outreach and facilitate capacity building programs for youth in Indiana. The proposal supports the concept of Youth Development which allows youth to have meaningful engagement in the state’s tobacco control program. This team of youth will also service in an advisory capacity to TPC and can be called upon to provide input on relevant campaigns and initiatives.
