From aging in place to improving quality of life; QuitDoc strives to Help You Be "You" Longer!
From creating vape-free and tobacco-free social norms to generating community-based friendly aging standards, QuitDoc is a dedicated advocate to ensure that everyone has access to an environment that will support living a longer, fuller, healthier life.
The challenges of living independently expand as a person ages. To safely and securely live at home, further support beyond the individual may be needed. Be Longer strives to be a resource to bring together the support you need to Be You Longer!

QUITDOC HAS PARTNERED WITH ELLI-Q
In addition to developing our own programs to address each of these issues, we are currently partnering with existing organizations to spread the message. Each year we also participate in events celebrating Kick Butts Day, the annual celebration of youth advocacy, leadership and activism sponsored by Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. We have also coordinated local research on Point-of-Purchase advertising with Countertools.org.
Our efforts were rewarded in March 2008 with three grants from the Florida Department of Health to provide our innovative programs in three Florida counties: Dixie County, Gilchrist County, and Martin County. By July, 2015, we expanded the program to include twelve Florida counties. Click here for more information on our Community-Based Tobacco Prevention Grants.
