National Network Aimed at Closing the Gap in Disparities

SelfMade Health Network (SMHN) is part of the CDC’s consortium of national organizations to advance the prevention of commercial tobacco use and cancer in populations experiencing tobacco- and cancer-related health disparities.

The consortium is jointly funded by CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health and Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. With a specific focus on populations with low socio-economic characteristics, the work of SMHN is intended to enhance the capacity, quality and performance of state tobacco prevention and cancer control programs, data and information systems, practice and services, partnerships, and resources to advance best and promising practices to respond to unique needs of this population.
