March 13, 2014 - Medi-Cal Incentives to Quit Smoking Project
There are currently about 3.7 million smokers in California - and approximately 700,000 are Medi-Cal members. From our perspective at First 5 Alameda County, this is especially tragic as studies show that children exposed to secondhand smoke have more breathing problems, earaches and colds, and secondhand smoke can trigger asthma episodes as well as increase the severity of attacks.
