Radioactive—Quit Smoking, Gain Weight: Tobacco Cessation In The African American Community
HideShow Tracklist

GSA President and Clinical Health Psychology PhD program’s McKnight Doctoral Fellow, Marcia McNutt, discussed weight gain and tobacco cessation in the African American Community. Tobacco cessation has been on the public health agenda for decades, and though cigarette use has lowered – 20% of Americans smoke. African Americans and Caucasians smoke at about the same rate, but African Americans experience have a higher prevalence more tobacco-related diseases. Marcia and the UM are testing to see if the 'gold standard' smoking cessation intervention personalized to include aspects of African American culture will be more efficacious than the standard intervention.
