Update: Quitline continues despite ALA DC’s demise

As April winds down, so too does the American Lung Association’s DC chapter (see previous post). Finally someone in the local media covered this – WAMU’s Rebecca Sheir. The good news is that the quitline that ALA DC has been running will continue at United Medical Center, thanks to a grant from the D.C. Cancer Consortium and the D.C. Department of Health.

The bad news is that the money runs out at the end of September. It’s unclear whether the funds will be found to continue it.

Go to and scroll down to the April 23 story,  “Anti-Tobacco Agency In D.C. Faces Uncertain Future.”
