To address tobacco use, community health workers (CHWs) are a resource for disseminating education among a population. To promote smoking cessation in Texas, there is a need for the development of a smoking cessation training program for CHWs. The National Community Health Worker Training Center used an approach with CHWs to develop a curriculum. From the curriculum development and with feedback from CHWs, 4 training courses were produced: online and in person, and in English and Spanish. The curriculum meets a need that disseminates smoking cessation strategies through peer-led, culturally relevant messages. © 2019 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
