SCLC Webinars

PURPOSE

The Smoking Cessation Leadership Center’s WEBINAR SERIES is integral to the technical assistance provided by the SCLC. Nationally recognized smoking cessation experts offer the latest information related to smoking cessation (including effective interventions) for the general and the behavioral health populations.

The goals of the SCLC tobacco-free campaign:

  • Provide training and technical assistance to raise awareness of the many benefits smoking cessation efforts and to increase understanding of effective smoking cessation strategies.
  • Implement or enhance existing tobacco cessation services using evidence-based practices.
  • Ensure that consumers and staff have access to smoking cessation services and supports to promote health and wellness.
  • Establish partnerships between behavioral health and nicotine cessation organizations to increase available tobacco cessation resources in communities.

The Smoking Cessation Leadership Center (SCLC) hosted a free webinar, “Smoking and Dementia: Are You at Risk for Alzheimer’s?” on June 25, 2014 at 2:00pm Eastern Time/ 11:00am Pacific Time (90 minutes).


We are honored that Eric B. Larson, MD, MPH, MACP, Vice President for Research, Group Health and  Executive Director & Senior Investigator, Group Health Research Institute (GHRI), presented on this topic for us.

Webinar Objectives

  • Describe how research has changed  our understanding of Alzheimer’s and late life dementias
  • Value the magnitude of the “epidemic” of Alzheimer’s and late life dementias
  • Explain that reduction of vascular risk is a promising way to reduce risk of experiencing Alzheimer’s and late life dementia and that these conditions are among the most feared of any chronic disease. 
  • Apply the knowledge that smoking increases vascular risk and the risk of developing late life dementias and  Alzheimer’s disease  to promote smoking cessation
  • Assess that evidence of declining incidence rates reported  in several recent papers argues for preventability of Alzheimer’s and late life dementias
