Morgan State University has years of reputation to promote research pertinent to drug use and prevention, and CEASE is one of them. CEASE is a Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) partnership committed to addressing tobacco-related health disparities in underserved urban communities. Recent evidence showed that tobacco product use among US youth is increasing, with an increasing trend of using non-traditional forms such as electronic cigarettes. Given the health risk of tobacco, especially among youth, decreasing and preventing youth tobacco use is a public health priority. In an effort to address this issue, we have designed this project that focuses on assessing the effectiveness of different forms of motivation for smoking cessation among youths and adults.


To truly capture the youths’ perspective, knowledge, and attitude towards different tobacco products, we would like to request your assistance to recruit qualified youth into a summer internship program on tobacco. The program will last for one month and includes a 2-hour virtual session twice a week. Each participant will receive incentives ($25 per session attended) in compensation for their time and will have a chance to voice their viewpoints, and concerns regarding the different tobacco products available in their community, and the various influences that promote youth tobacco use. They can bring new perspectives and innovative ideas that will help to design and implement effective tobacco control and smoking cessation strategies.
