Lower Your Risk

Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health and the number one way to lower your risk for lung cancer. If you are ready to quit, our FREE face-to-face smoking-cessation program helps you identify situations that trigger you to smoke and develop strategies to kick the habit.

    Double your chances of quitting with a quit coach!

    Counseling in combination with nicotine replacement therapy (patches, gum or medications) doubles your chances of quitting! Nicotine replacement therapy and medications are FREE to Delaware residents who work with a quit coach.

    Screening for Life and Health Care Connection

    Don’t let lack of insurance or copays keep you from getting screened!

    Screening for Life and the Health Care Connection Screening for Life provides payment for cancer screening tests recommended by your doctor if you meet age, income and insurance guidelines. This program is a cooperative effort of the Delaware Division of Public Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Health Care Connection simplifies the eligibility screening process to help uninsured Delawareans access primary care and medical specialists, disease prevention services — such as cancer screenings — and helps ensure access to prescription programs, laboratory and radiology services.
