Seizing on Teachable Moments

Major health events like surgery, pregnancy, and the diagnosis of cancer or a chronic disease can change a person’s whole outlook on life. We believe both patients and providers have the opportunity to teach, learn, and make short-term health decisions around tobacco use, diet, and exercise, that can turn into lifelong positive change.
