Faith Community Combats Use of Menthol Cigarettes

Health professionals are teaming with members of the faith community around the nation to combat the use of menthol cigarettes, especially in the Black community.

As a result of the numbers, the Center for Black Health is sponsoring its annual “No Menthol Sunday,” this Sunday, May 15th. The aim of the observance is to prevent tobacco-related death and disease, and address health disparities, particularly in the Black community.

Delmonte Jefferson is Executive Director of the Center for Black Health and Equity.
