"Can a family-focused intervention promote smoking cessation in Chinese and Vietnamese male smokers?"
Age: 18 to 100 years old
Healthy Volunteers: No
Keywords: smoking cessation, family, health behavior
Type: Behavioral study
This project proposes two aims. The first aim is to evaluate the efficacy of a family-focused intervention in promoting smoking cessation in Chinese and Vietnamese male smokers. Half of the participants will be assigned to the proposed intervention, and the remaining half will be assigned to an attention-control condition where they will receive education on healthy eating and physical activity.

The second aim is to explore mediators to identify key psychosocial and behavioral processes that underlie how the intervention affects the processes of quitting and maintaining abstinence in Chinese and Vietnamese smokers.
