Background

Eliminate Tobacco Use Texas is the initiative’s founding site. In 2015, Dr. David Lakey of The University of Texas System and Dr. Ernest Hawk, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, along with the EndTobacco® Program team at MD Anderson and the Office of Health Affairs at UT System, created the Eliminate Tobacco Use Texas Initiative. The aim of the initiative was to first tackle tobacco use among the 14 University of Texas system institutions to more effectively lead larger statewide and national tobacco control efforts. The national initiative grew out of foundational work in Texas as the initiative’s first state site.
