What is the goal of the Menthol Tobacco Smoking Survey?

The goal of the project is to identify and implement community-driven strategies to reduce menthol cigarette use among US-born African Americans (US-AA) in Hennepin and Ramsey counties. Our aim is to expand the awareness of menthol targeting in affected populations. The increased awareness will create greater community demand for action that supports policy, systems, and environmental changes to address the harms of tobacco in the US-AA community in Hennepin and Ramsey counties.
