Webinars & Registration

If you haven’t had a South Dakota QuitLine presentation in the last year or you have new staff, the SDQL 101 webinar is a terrific way to update staff on the program and all it can offer South Dakota tobacco users. The information would be helpful to any staff member who is involved in the tobacco identification and referral process (nurses, receptionists, dental hygienists, doctors, PAs, dentists, etc.).

South Dakota QuitLine 101 is a 45 – 60 minute overview of the South Dakota QuitLine presented by the Statewide Tobacco Cessation Coordinator. The webinar covers:

  • Phone-based SD QuitLine – eligibility, referral process, coaching, medications
  • Web-based SD QuitLine
  • Overview of the 2As and an R and new AAR Pocketguides
  • Tobacco use and impact data by SD counties
  • Tobacco and nicotine addiction
Register for a QuitLine Webinar

One to two days before the webinar you will receive a reminder email with instructions for joining.

If you have not already participated in a Microsoft Office Live Meeting, use the information in the reminder email to log on 5 to 10 minutes before the webinar start time. There is a small program file that will need to be downloaded onto your computer that will take a couple minutes.
