Data will be presented that shows in Detroit, and the U.S. at large, a considerably larger percent of individuals of lower socioeconomic status (SES) smoke cigarettes than individuals of higher SES. In addition, cigarette smoking is more prevalent among populations that already experience a disproportionate amount of health disparities is a tremendously serious public health issue.  The webinar will focus on exploring reasons for these differences and discuss ways by which improving the economic well-being of entire populations could reduce the prevalence of cigarettes smoking and its concomitant health and mental health problems.
