Bringing EX to A Million Hearts

This study evaluates the impact of primary care provider assessment, advice, and proactive referral to Legacy’s smoking cessation website and text message programs. Smokers who visit their MedStar Health physician are proactively connected to an Internet or text message-based quit smoking program to study how these services can be used along with the doctor's visit for better quit smoking success.

This grant was awarded to investigators at MedStar Health/Georgetown University Medical Center (PIs: Iguchi/Tercyak) in collaboration with Legacy researchers (Site PI: Graham).
