CareerSource Florida and Tobacco Free Florida Working Together for a Healthier Florida

CareerSource Florida and Tobacco Free Florida are working together for a healthier Florida.  Tobacco Free Florida understands how essential staff’s daily work is to helping job seekers build better lives. That’s why they are joining with CareerSource Florida to help expand your impact. Thanks to a statewide partnership, CareerSource staff will now be able to refer clients to Florida’s “3 Easy & Free Ways to Quit” cessation services.  Multifaceted in approach, the statewide roll-out features a project tutorial, a Cost Savings calculator, referral forms, and marketing materials as well as a customized, web-based “Cost Savings” landing page that can be shared with clients who agree to briefly discuss their tobacco use with you at the centers.  Please view the project tutorial as soon as possible.

Project Tutorial: http://fl.btpp.myhostedsolution.net/CareerSource_FL/default.aspx

This tutorial provides an overview of the Tobacco Cessation Model Project, which can help your clients quit tobacco and eliminate the negative impact it has on their finances and employability.

 The Costs Savings Landing Page Link: www.tobaccofreeflorida.com/cost

This is a customized link to web-based information for clients that features an interactive Cost Calculator. With a few clicks they can see for themselves how much they can save, if they quit smoking by using Florida’s 3 Free and Easy ways to quit.

Click here to download the AHEC referral form to be completed for individuals wanting a referral to the tobacco cessation program. In addition, the following codes have been established in EFM.

Tobacco User – No Referral Made




Tobacco User – Referral made to AHEC




Tobacco User – Referral to Quit line



The TNR code would be used for those individuals that use tobacco but do not want a referral and allows us to get a count of the total number of people we have provided outreach on the issue. The other two codes would be used depending on which referral was requested by the individual.
