Developing a Comprehensive Statewide Smoking Cessation Plan for IU Health: Leveraging a connection with the Indiana Tobacco Quitline Public Deposited

Indiana has the 10th highest rate of smokers in the United States with 21.1% of the population who

smoke. This costs the state $2.93 billion in health care dollars and another $3 billion in lost productivity

per year. Indiana has historically been behind other states in smoking cessation investments and

programs, but has recently outlined 2020 mission, values, and priorities that will increase the focus and

investment in this area. IU Health is aligning with the State of Indiana by developing an internal plan that

will leverage state programs and funds to develop a comprehensive program for smoking cessation.
