About Us:

This website was developed by Daniel E. Ford, MD MPH of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Thomas K. Houston, MD MPH at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. They worked with a collaborative panel of consultants (both smokers and non-smokers, researchers and non-researchers). Dr. Ford and Dr. Houston are primary care health providers with expertise in research and smoking cessation. We asked a group of current and former smokers to review the content of our site and other quit smoking sites on the Internet. The content of the program is, in many ways, a result of their help.

Funding for this website is provided by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR). No funding from tobacco companies, drug companies or other industries was used for this program.
