The National Institutes of Health is spending over $200,000 on a "Facebook intervention" targeting young gay people who smoke.
University - California - San - Francisco - Funding
The University of California, San Francisco received the funding for the project, which began in August. The goal of the study is to create a "culturally-tailored intervention" on social media for LGBTQ teens.
"Sexual and gender minority (SGM) young adults (those who identify with a sexual orientation that is non-heterosexual such as gay, ****, or bisexual; or those who have a gender identity different from the sex assigned to them at birth) are disproportionately affected by tobacco use and associated health conditions; yet they face significant barriers to treatment participation and lower levels of satisfaction with treatment than others," according to the grant for the project.
