Health clinics where low-income people in the U.S. obtain medical care don’t always offer help with quitting smoking - and availability of that assistance may vary by patients’ ethnicity and insurance, a recent study suggests. So-called safety net clinics exist to reduce barriers to healthcare. Patients at these clinics have higher-than-average rates of smoking, so it’s particularly important to address these disparities, said Dr. Steffani Bailey.
