The medical students from EAT-UFLA have also participated in many public events, radio and news journal interviews, constantly advocating for tobacco control in the city of Lavras.

The chapter is entitled Education Against Tobacco – Federal University of Lavras (EAT/UFLA): medical students speaking up for tobacco control in adolescence and is part of the book “Health Sciences: from theory to practice”. The full book chapter (in Portuguese) can be found by clicking here.


EAT-UFLA was founded in 2017 and is one of the most proactive groups among the 14 Medical Schools that currently conduct EAT educational interventions in Brazil. The UFLA team is supervised by medical student Daiana Godoy, who is the first author of the published book chapter.
