What can be done?
Combating cancer caused by tobacco use starts at home within the community. This infographic - Eliminating Cancer Diagnoses in a Community - details what employers, housing authorities, faith-based organizations and health systems can do to reduce tobacco-caused cancers locally.
How do we change tobacco use and encourage cancer screenings in low SES populations? We start from the ground up focusing on creating smoke-free environments and early cancer screenings and follow-up. This infographic - Preventing Health Disparities in LSES Populations - uses Maslow’s famed Hierarchy of Needs model to stress the importance of effectively sharing educational tools with those that need them.
