The QuitBot Study is being conducted by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
This study is looking for Native American (American Indian/Alaska Native) adult smokers who want to quit. In this study, participants will be asked to connect to the QuitBot smoking cessation programs that will contact you with messages using either text messages or Facebook messenger. The goal of this study is to learn which program is the most useful for people who want to quit smoking. The study will also involve several short surveys at the start of the study and again 3 months later.
