Socioeconomic Disparities in Smoking Cessation: Identifying the Mechanisms
This study will determine if low SES increases the odds of relapse through a number of hypothesized mechanisms. This work is innovative because it will explore mediational pathways between SES and smoking cessation among individuals of varying racial/ethnic backgrounds from two distinct samples, using both traditional (questionnaire) and state-of-the-science real-time assessment methodology. This information was used to develop a new smart phone–based smoking cessation treatment that assesses relapse risk in real time and automatically intervenes to reduce risk (Project Smart-T).
