Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people smoke at roughly twice the rate of non-LGBT people, putting them at elevated risk for smoking-related health disparities. In this webinar, Phoenix Matthews, PhD, Associate Professor and Clinical Psychologist at the University of Illinois at Chicago, will educate participants about smoking disparities among LGBT people, including a discussion of what motivates LGBT people to smoke, what clinicians can do to help LGBT people quit, and what the state of the science says about smoking cessation interventions for LGBT people. Dr. Matthews is nationally and internationally known for health disparities research with underserved populations primarily focused on culturally targeted cancer risk reduction interventions. Currently Dr. Matthews is the Principal Investigator of an NIH-funded study to conduct a randomized clinical trial of a smoking cessation intervention for adult smokers.
