EAT-Brazil.

Brazilian medical students and physicians improving tobacco control

EAT-Brazil was founded in 2016 and it is currently implemented in 43 Brazilian medical schools. In 2017, EAT-Brazil was awarded the Laureate Brazil Prize for Social Entrepreneurship. One randomized controlled study published in 2019 proved that EAT-Brazil is highly effective both in preventing smoking onset and in promoting smoking cessation. Read more about this scientific study and the history of EAT-Brazil by clicking here.

Any Brazilian medical student who is interested in founding a local group should contact Bruno Lourençoni (UFLA Medical School, bruno.freitas@estudante.ufla.br) as he will be able to provide pre-tested translated materials and specific orientations (involving calls and required mentorship) on how to successfully implement EAT locally.
