Smoking CessationIn King County, 10% of Latino adults are smokers and 10% of Latino high school students have smoked cigarettes in the past 30 days (Public health data watch 2012). El Centro de la Raza’s Smoking Cessation Program supports Seattle Cancer Care Alliance’s cancer prevention goals by prioritizing tobacco cessation education and enhancing outreach and education of cancer risk to Latino communities and other under-served populations. Through culturally and linguistically competent workshops with youth and adults, the program raises awareness about the risk of tobacco use, provide strategies to reduce second hand smoke exposure, and offers tobacco quitting resources to communities that may not otherwise have access to such information. The program also offers one-on-one case management to support clients in developing and implementing a quit plan. El Centro de la Raza is a regional lead with the Nuestras Voces: National Network to Reduce Tobacco – Related and Cancer health disparities project implemented by the National Alliance for Hispanic Health.
