stopsmokingsiteA new study is testing whether an automated self-help “Stop Smoking” website—available in both English and Spanish with various resources and tools to track quit progress—can help smokers quit at higher rates than trying to quit on their own.

Visit the website in English or Spanish to enroll in this no-cost study.

The study, led by Redes En Acción: The National Latino Cancer Research Network, which is funded by the National Cancer Institute, is a collaboration between researchers at the Institute for Health Promotion Research (IHPR) at The UT Health Science Center at San Antonio and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

Upon enrollment, researchers will randomly assign participants to one of two methods to quit:

  • Immediate no-cost access to the UCSF “Stop Smoking” website
  • “Quit on Your Own” plus no-cost access to the same website after 6 months

Participants’ smoking status will be evaluated at 1, 3, and 6 months.

This project has a very strict privacy policy, and only researchers will have access to personally identifiable information. The study website site is a self-help health resource. It is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
