The History of Smoking Cessation Exhibit

A History of Smoking Cessation depicts a history of cessation starting in the later 1800s up until current times. From the Seventh Day Adventists clinics to aversion techniques to medications and tobacco industry influence, this exhibit explores factors that both encourage and discourage smoking cessation, as well as innovations that may support or provide an off-ramp to cessation efforts.

The Evolving Cigarette Exhibit
