Partnering with EX, and the Community

Wow, the new site looks wonderful!  


Our team at the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center heartily commend the EX Team for all the hard work that has brought about this new chapter in the ongoing mission to create a world where everyone who wants to stop smoking has all the support and capacity to make that happen.  


We also are very pleased to partner with the EX Team and all the community members and visitors to the BecomeAnEX site.  Tobacco use remains the leading cause of death in the United States.  Our work with patients and families often makes this statistic too very real.  Daily we see patients who are suffering, or dying, from the effects of an addiction that could have, and should have, been treated sooner.  This work is vitally important.


We look forward to working with you to provide hope and to deliver proven strategies that will correct the misunderstandings about the addiction, stop the blaming of the person suffering from the addiction, and change the current state in which there is too little access to support and treatment for this deadly addiction.  Together we can make a difference.
