The CHARM research study was designed to help us learn more about African American women cigarette and cigar smokers’ tobacco use and thoughts about using certain products to quit smoking. This research study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at UAMS.
Be a part of Year 2!
This is an online, single-session study. Participants will complete a survey and either 1) a focus group interview or 2) complete a short assessment, watch a brief video, and then retake the short assessment.
