Please continue to promote the new KanCare cessation benefits and request additional copies of the information card. Electronic and print color posters are now available for companies who are tobacco-free or working toward this objective. The purpose of the posters is to drive demand for cessation services under KanCare. Contact KAFP Tobacco Coordinator Kim Neufeld to request copies.
