Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner recently eliminated the budget for the Illinois Tobacco Quit Line, effective immediately. This has significant repercussions for the UI Cancer Center, most importantly because we rely on the Quit Line as a tool to navigate smokers to cessation and to lung cancer screening. Likewise, an increase in smoking cessation leads to a decrease in lung cancer. Read our letter to Governor Rauner here.
