As detailed in our reports, a lack of evidence-based programs intended to identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities has hindered efforts to reduce prevalence rates among affected populations. Disparities exist among populations and result in increased tobacco-related deaths and disease. These populations are subject to a disproportionately high use of tobacco, increased targeting by the tobacco industry and a lack of tailored programs to reduce tobacco use in these communities. This is especially true among the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, and gender queer (LGBTQ) residents of Missouri. Check out our research posters and presentations to see what we’ve been learning about tobacco use among Missouri’s LGBTQ community.
