About Us Overview

The Tobacco Technical Assistance Consortium (TTAC) is dedicated to assisting national, state, regional and local tobacco control programs, coalitions, networks and other interested parties to promote CDC-recommended program and policy best practices. We provide customized training support in various formats, expert technical assistance, and a wide variety of products and tools to help all levels of tobacco control efforts be successful.

TTAC is strategically located within the Emory Centers for Training and Technical Assistance, at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, amidst many of the country’s leading public health experts and organizations. We are a sister program to the Diabetes Training and Technical Assistance Center (DTTAC), which is recognized as a resource for capacity building at the state, local, national and international levels in diabetes prevention and control and within the larger public health community.

With TTAC’s highly trained cadre of staff and consultants, and its many years specializing in training and technical assistance services, we are uniquely qualified to customize training and technical assistance services to meet the specific yet varied needs of people and organizations who contact us. TTAC bridges gaps and limitations that may result among the many different providers or training programs and technical assistance programs. People often come to TTAC as a first stop when they don’t know where else to go, or the last stop when they haven’t been able to find the help they need anywhere else. Either way, TTAC is uniquely situated to provide the help needed.
