Study to help women quit smoking

Trinity College Dublin together with the Irish Cancer Society and the HSE, are inviting women from the Ballyfermot, Chapelizod and Cherry Orchard areas to take part in a new community based study to help women quit smoking.

The aim of the study is to figure out the best way to support women to stop smoking by comparing two different programmes; a community stop smoking programme, which is specifically designed for women, and a HSE stop smoking service.
