Smoking rates in Arab American adults are among the highest in the world; survey data suggest relatively high tobacco use in Arab American youths as well.In preparation for extramural funding four(4)Pilot studies were conducted with 14-18 year old Arab American youths. The first,Pilot Focus, had 4 groups with 6-8 teen smokers each (N=28).The purpose of this study was to have the teens critically examine proposed study measures and the Project Toward No Tobacco(Project TNT)use intervention and to provide qualitative data about tobacco use history. The second, Pilot Intervention had 9 adolescents participate in the 4 Project TNT sessions and their smoking behavior evaluated at a one month follow-up. The third, Pilot Clinic recruited youths attending the Teen Health Center during a randomly selected two week period to determine the availability and willingness of youths to participate in the planned study. The fourth, Pilot School, examined tobacco use in 119 Arab American 9th-12th graders. The Adolescent Tobacco Use model(Houston, 1994)guided the pilot studies and provides direction for the NIH funded study now under way.This will be described in some detail.
