No Menthol Sunday

No Menthol Sunday, an international observance day led by The Center for Black Health & Equity is an important opportunity to engage faith leaders and their communities in a discussion about how to improve health outcomes for African Americans. Tobacco is still the number one killer of African Americans, and people of faith can play a major role in changing this. Not only do we take this day to encourage congregations and communities to support one another in escaping tobacco addiction, but we also aim to highlight the role of menthol and flavors in particular.

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.

This program will bring awareness to faith-based organizations, such as churches, mosques, etc., about the dangers of tobacco and its link to cancer.
