Southern RI STARS Training

Jan 01, 1970 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

The STARS Training will equip individuals to use the STARS national survey to collect tobacco product observational data in their community retail settings.  The STARS survey focuses on tobacco product price, promotion, flavor, and placement of specific brands of cigarettes, little cigars, cigarillos, snus, snuff, electronic cigarettes, dissolvable tobacco and other tobacco products.  The collected survey information will educate community decision makers as to the prevalence of tobacco products in retail settings and to the importance of limiting youth access to these deadly products.  This training will assist those in southern RI who are interested in training members in their own communities to collect data using the STARS survey.  The training also serves a dual purpose and will train both youth and/or adult community members to become STARS data collectors. This training is being provided by the RI Department of Health and coordinated by Tobacco Free RI.
