"This is a case where being last, means you are doing well," said Wayne Tormala, Chief, Arizona Department of Health Services Bureau of Tobacco & Chronic Disease.
"Many factors affect whether people go for screenings," added Tormala. "The economy may have an impact on early diagnosis as lost jobs means lost insurance, and that leads to potentially more advanced-stages of cancers in our state, calling for a heightened urgency for early prevention and education." "Next to prevention and intervention, well-founded data is a critical first step in addressing cancer in our state," said Tormala.

"It's a digital reminder," said Wayne Tormala, head of the Arizona Department of Health Services Bureau for Tobacco and Chronic Disease.
"This is a way to especially target younger people who are more likely to use [Facebook]." The sooner they can get smokers to kick the habit, the better, Tormala said. "Although ideally we'd get them to never start in the first place." The application has been in development since the spring, Tormala said, and the agency plans to release the application for Apple's iPhone before the end of the year. The application is ready to go, Tormala said, but the agency is clearing up some last-minute details with Apple before it can be officially released for smart phone users. The smoker's helpline, (800) 556-6222, has had a great track record, Tormala said. "We've got about a 40 to 50 percent success rate in getting people to quit," Tormala said. "That's very good, probably the highest success rate in the country." A key factor, Tormala said, is that the service is staffed with people who are all former smokers, giving those trying to quit an opportunity to get support from someone who has already been there.
