Community Practice-Based Research Initiatives Webinar


In 2016, TRDRP began investing in the Community Practice-Based Research (CPBR) initiative. The first three projects determined and addressed the reasons why patients treated at clinics that accept Medi-Cal often are not provided with effective tobacco cessation treatments. Using clinical information along with community feedback, these projects have begun enhancing community-focused tobacco cessation activities. This work is part of ongoing efforts dedicated to improving access and creating sustainable change at a system level. 

The webinar will be led by Dr. Youn Ok (Younoki) Lee, TRDRP Program Officer and distinguished presenters include:

  • Theodore C. Friedman, M.D., Ph.D. (Charles R. Drew University of Medicine & Science);
  • Elisa Tong, M.D., M.A. and Cindy Valencia, Ph.D., M.P.H (University of California, Davis); and
  • Caravella McCuistian, Ph.D. and Maya Vijayaraghavan, MD MAS (University of California, San Francisco)

To request access to the webinar recording, please email and confirm that you are not affiliated with the commercial tobacco industry or an organization that accepts commercial tobacco industry funding.
