Our Tailored Assistance Trainers

 

A major feature of The LOOP is the provision of tailored assistance responsive to grantees’ requests, enabling them to implement more effectively their local tobacco control interventions and initiatives. This is a free service provided to statewide CTCP grantees. Subject matter experts have been identified and recruited to provide trainings and tailored assistance that cover a range of tobacco control topics, as well as other areas pertinent to reaching and serving California’s diverse populations.
 
You can currently make a request for tailored assistance by contacting us at theloop@ucsf.edu. This is a partial list of our tailored assistance trainers and their expertise.

Connecting with Kings County
After connecting her with a LOOP Technical Assistance Trainer (TAT), the Kings County Tobacco Control Program Project Director, Oralia Vallejo, told the LOOP:

“Indeed, [connecting us with a LOOP TAT] is wonderful news! Kings County is the small county south of Fresno that is always overlooked, and yet we have so much work yet to do in tobacco. We have limited resources, and yet our smoking rate is at 16%…you have truly made my day and weekend. I look forward to working with [the TAT] to raise the level of awareness of the issue of tobacco use in Kings County.”
