As appropriate to each individual’s readiness to quit, the successful applicant will provide screening, assessment, proactive (counselor-initiated) follow-up counseling, and support materials. In addition, FDA-approved pharmacotherapies will also be procured by the successful applicant and distributed to a limited population of Iowans.
