College Students and Smoking Cessation
This study will help to establish the feasibility of a new smoking cessation and prevention intervention including two new modules addressing alcohol use and depression. In addition, we will demonstrate the feasibility of a smoking prevention website. Both cessation and prevention programs will be tailored to the needs of culturally diverse urban (University of Houston) and rural (Texas A&M) university campuses.
