Helping American Indian People Quit Smoking

Supporting Smoking Cessation and Traditional Tobacco among American Indian People

Recent data shows that about 43% of American Indian persons who start smoking have successfully quit. SPH Assistant Professor Dana Carroll–an epidemiologist, certified tobacco treatment specialist, and UMN Masonic Cancer Center member–has developed smoking cessation strategies that specifically support American Indian persons who want to stop smoking succeed. This work is made possible through relationship building and collaborations with tribes, knowledge holders, and clinics serving American Indian persons.

Find infographics and guides developed from research to support smoking cessation, many of which were developed in collaboration with tribal communities and designed by Native artists, which are free to download, print, and distribute.
