Graphic Messages to Prevent E-Cigarette Use Among Latino and African American Adolescents: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Lead Researcher: Francisco Cartujano barrera

The aim of this study is to determine if graphic messages prevent future vaping among Black and Latino adolescents. The images have been developed in a user-design model and include four main themes: health reward, financial reward, self-efficacy, and social norms. We will assess pre- and post-exposure reactions on likelihood of future vaping.
