The Maryland Quitting Use and Initiation of Tobacco (MDQuit) Resource Center is dedicated to assisting providers and programs in reducing tobacco use among citizens across the state. Our mission is to link professionals and providers to state tobacco initiatives, to provide evidence-based, effective resources and tools to local programs, to create and support an extensive, collaborative network of tobacco prevention and cessation professionals, and to provide a forum for sharing best practices throughout the state of Maryland.
