Communities Engaged in Advocating for a Smoke Free Environment (CEASE)

Dr. Payam Sheikhattari, Research Fellow at the Prevention Sciences Research Center and Associate Professor at the Morgan State University School of Community Health and Policy, has recently been awarded $1,393,568 for the project titled, "Dissemination and Implementation of the CEASE Intervention to Reduce Tobacco Use." funded by the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) for three years to support the CEASE (Communities Engaged and Advocating for a Smoke-free Environment) partnership and to help other community organizations adopt, implement, and disseminate the CEASE intervention and expand services to a larger group of disparity populations and increase the number of residents who quit smoking. The CEASE Intervention which was proven to be quite successful in Southwest Baltimore, aims to help participants quit smoking using a Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) approach. The replication of the CEASE project in the Waverly community represents an increasing number of initiatives working within the Morgan Community Mile to help find solutions to community problems.
