Learn the Latest in Tobacco Science: 2019 Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco Conference
How prevalent is Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS) use among youth? How does economic hardship affect the use of filtered cigars and cigarillos? How do exposure biomarkers compare in flavored vs. unflavored cigarillo users?
Westat staff will provide the answers to these questions and more at the 25th Annual Meeting of the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (SRNT) in San Francisco, California, February 20-23, 2019.
Presentations and posters to which Westat staff (names in bold) are contributing follow. For more details, see the SRNT program.
