EAT-Brazil was founded in 2016 and it is currently implemented in 14 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.

Any Brazilian medical student who is interested in founding a local group should contact Daiana Godoy (UFLA Medical School, firstname.lastname@example.org) as she will be able to provide pre-tested translated materials and specific orientations (involving calls and required mentorship) on how to successfully implement EAT locally.
