Investigator: Janice Tsoh, PhD
Sponsor: University of California Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program (TRDRP)

Location(s): United States


This 2-year study will develop a family intervention using lay health worker (LHW) outreach to promote smoking cessation in Vietnamese American men. The specific aims are to: 1) Develop a culturally and linguistically appropriate family intervention with LHW outreach targeting Vietnamese smokers and their families for smoking cessation. 2) Conduct a pilot feasibility trial using one-group pre- and post-intervention design to examine feasibility. Participants will be recruited from the Santa Clara County of California, the county with the second-largest Vietnamese American population.
