UTHealth Houston researchers fight smoking with mHealth interventions

Smoking rates among adults in the United States have fallen precipitously since the first Great American Smokeout was organized in San Francisco in 1977, falling from over 33% then, to less than 12.5% today. Yet cigarette smoking remains the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the country. UTHealth Houston School of Public Health researchers are developing new and intriguing techniques, utilizing mobile health technology, to help smokers quit.
