Disclosure Statement

In 2012, the University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI) reached 20 years of helping smokers to quit. UW-CTRI is nationally recognized for its ground-breaking tobacco research that is translated into tobacco treatment. UW-CTRI conducts tobacco research not just in its own labs in Madison and Milwaukee, but also in healthcare clinics throughout Wisconsin. Beyond studying ways to improve treatments, other studies at UW-CTRI are looking at how we can improve the effectiveness of community, state and national responses to reduce the emotional, physical, and financial consequences of smoking.

UW-CTRI also provides services to thousands of Wisconsin residents through the Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line, which offers free coaching to anyone anywhere in Wisconsin 24/7, supported by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Since the launch of UW-CTRI’s Outreach Program in 2001 as part of a comprehensive, statewide tobacco control program, UW-CTRI outreach specialists have worked with virtually every health-care system and insurer – as well as thousands of clinics and dozens of hospitals across Wisconsin.
