Healthy Caribbean Coalition - Smoking Cessation Collaboration

<< back to News index

Dear HCC members,

We have received a request through the InterAmerican Heart Foundation for assistance in identifying persons/organizations who are interested in collaborating in the area of smoking cessation.

Prof Gustavo Zabert, who is the Latin American Regional Director for Global Bridges, an international program at the Mayo Clinic for expanding availability of smoking cessation treatment, would like to identify health professionals in the CARICOM countries that are already involved in or wish to learn about smoking cessation.

Initially the effort will be around building a network of health professionals. Later there will be opportunities for training.

If you are interested in this collaboration please send an email to Prof. Zabert at gzabert@gmail.com and let him know that you are a member of the Healthy Caribbean Coalition.
