No Menthol Sunday

This is a past event.

No Menthol Sunday is a national observance day led by the National African American Tobacco Prevention Network to engage faith leaders, churches and their communities in a discussion about how to improve health outcomes for African Americans who use tobacco. 

This is one of the many health education programs provided by the Office of Community Outreach & Engagement at the O'Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB.

Tobacco is still the No. 1 killer of African Americans. It is our goal to provide strategic information, educational materials and resources. This program will bring awareness to faith-based organizations, such as churches, mosques, etc., about the dangers of tobacco and its link to cancer.

Register with us online to participate in No Menthol Sunday 2020, receive FREE educational and promotional items and download our No Menthol Sunday toolkit.
