Horizon Health Network receives an award at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute's 10th Annual Ottawa Conference: State of the Art Clinical Approaches to Smoking Cessation. 

The New Brunswick Anti-Tobacco Coalition wishes to congratulate Horizon Health Network on the award it received during the University of Ottawa Heart Institute's 10th Annual Ottawa Conference: State of the Art Clinical Approaches to Smoking Cessation in January 2018. Horizon Health Network received the award as recognition for its commitment to making smoking cessation a standard within its organization.

Horizon Health Network is celebrating 10 years of implementing the Ottawa Model for Smoking Cessation. It has implemented the model throughout its organization to more than 30 sites including hospitals, community health centres and units within the NB Extra-Mural Program. In 2009, it was designated as one of three Centres of Excellence for Clinical Smoking Cessation in Canada. Since then, Horizon Health Network's Centre of Excellence for Clinical Smoking Cessation helps to expand this model of care to a variety of health-care settings in Atlantic Canada. 

Congratulations to our colleagues at Horizon Health! Your hard work and dedication towards reducing tobacco use rates in New Brunswick are to be applauded.
