Webinars: Somalis & Smoking Cessation

smoking handsSomali adults are more likely to smoke than other Minnesota adults. About 14 percent of all adult Minnesotans smoke, while the rate among Somalis is 24 percent.

With the obvious connection between smoking and health, smoking cessation efforts directed at Somalis need to be turned up. Find out how stop-smoking programs can be improved and made more culturally relevant for Somalis at a Wellshare International-run webinar, noon to 1 pm, Thursday, May 26.

The free webinar will explore Somali culture and discuss:

  • Recommendations on engaging the Somali community in cessation programs
  • WellShare International's East African Smoke-Free program
  • Results from a study on culturally appropriate cessation strategies for Somalis in clinical settings
  • Opportunities for further action
