Web-Assisted Tobacco Intervention with Community College Students

This study combined mixed methods of qualitative and quantitative research with a group randomized design to test the effectiveness of Web-Assisted Tobacco Interventions (WATI) with Community College students in a geographically diverse region in Western New York. Informed by recent studies and advances in web-based technology, the study addressed recommended cessation strategies delivered with novel media, aiming to advance our understanding of the determinants of successful smoking cessation in a predominantly low-income, underserved and understudied population of primarily young adults.
