Wisconsin Case Study
Strategic Planning Process to Address Tobacco-Related Disparities in Wisconsin
Was a needs assessment completed?
Wisconsin applied for participation in the CDC pilot project due to lack of decline in adult tobacco use, perhaps because of the failure to address disparities. Through gathering data relevant to tobacco disparities while preparing the CDC proposal, the Wisconsin Division of Public Health Tobacco Control Program was able to begin documenting populations with a higher rate of tobacco use and tobacco-related disease as well as populations for which data was not available.
Planning Models Used
Wisconsin was a part of the CDC Pilot Training Program for Tobacco Use Among Population Groups and used the binder: Putting the Pieces Together to Identify and Eliminate Disparities as a guide for the planning process.
