Happy Trails, Jeanette!

It’s the end of an era at the Tobacco Control Evaluation Center. Long-time evaluation associate and former TCEC project director Jeanette Treiber has retired from her post to head for greener pastures! She won’t have to go far either—just right outside her door to the seven-acre Rio Linda farm she and her partner Deno have created.

Congratulations to Diana Cassady On Her Retirement!

The TCEC team extends its warmest wishes to Diana Cassady, DrPH, as she begins her retirement. Dr. Cassady has been the Principal Investigator of TCEC since 2007, and we owe her an enormous debt of gratitude for her leadership. We will miss her, and we wish her the best!

TCEC is still open for business!

During this uncertain time, we wanted to provide our partners around the state with assurance that we are still available to help you with your evaluation needs.

TCEC staff are currently working remotely, and may not be available by phone. If you need immediate assistance, you can reach our Help Desk at any time by emailing tcecTA@phmail.ucdavis.edu.

We ask for patience during this time and send our thoughts to everyone navigating this crisis.

As we prepare to start a new decade, TCEC is proud to unveil our fresh new look!

We have spent the last few months expanding, reorganizing, and updating our resources to better serve you. Here's a quick guide to help you get started: 

“Creating the Healthiest Nation: Health Equity Now”

For the 2018 American Public Health Associate Conference, TCEC prepared a poster on "Prohibiting Flavored Tobacco Products in California," sharing findings from key informant interviews, public intercept surveys, and evaluation reports-- all based on the fabulous work by local tobacco control programs.
