Description

Tobacco-related health disparities are strikingly acute among African American smokers who experience significantly greater smoking attributable morbidity and mortality compared to Whites despite lower daily cigarette consumption. Biopsychosocial factors impact tobacco use, characteristics of nicotine dependence, pharmacotherapy response, and smoking cessation outcomes. This presentation will summarize findings from clinical trials to improve tobacco dependence treatment outcomes among African American smokers, with a specific focus on mechanisms to explain lower quit rates in African Americans relative to Whites.
