A comprehensive multi-media program to prevent smoking among black students.
Much research has been done in developing and implementing smoking prevention programs ; however, few studies have focused on urban Black populations.
In November of 1989, a comprehensive prevention program was implemented to decrease the incidence of new smokers within the adolescent population in a Black community.
The program combined a school-based curriculum with a comprehensive media intervention.
All components of the program were financed by business leaders from the targeted community.
There were two experimental conditions : one group participated in a school-based intervention and were prompted to participate in a multi-media intervention and the other group had access to the multi-media intervention ; however, they were not prompted to participate.
