Erin Sinisgalli, director of St. Peter’s Health Partners (SPHP) Community Health Programs, was quoted in an article by Hudson Valley 360, powered by the Register-Star and The Daily Mail, on the “Year of Cessation” movement.
The campaign, launched by the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) Office on Smoking and Health, and supported by SPHP Community Health Programs, the CDC’s “Tips” campaign, the New York State Smokers’ Quitline, and other area healthcare professionals, highlights the integral role quitlines play in tobacco cessation.
From the article:
Locally, as part of Health Systems for a Tobacco-Free New York, St. Peter’s Health Partners Community Health Programs works directly with area healthcare professionals and organizations to develop appropriate screening for tobacco-use and to improve the reach and delivery of evidence-based tobacco dependence treatment.

“We’re proud to support the CDC’s ‘Year of Cessation’ and the Quitline, and remind all Capital Region tobacco users that quitting is the very best thing they can do to improve their health and quality of life,” said Erin Sinisgalli, director of St. Peter’s Health Partners Community Health Programs. “Tobacco users should always talk with their doctor or healthcare provider and call the Quitline for extra support.”
