Westat Researchers Develop Special Journal Issue on Tobacco Product Use
Westat staff have led an effort to create a special issue of Nicotine and Tobacco Research. Titled the Patterns and Correlates of Multiple Tobacco Product Use in the United States, the issue features 12 original investigations in tobacco regulatory science.
Topics covered include trends and racial disparities in tobacco use, associations of tobacco use to substance abuse and mental health issues, patterns of tobacco use among women, and more.
This issue is a product of the Center for Evaluation and Coordination of Training and Research (CECTR). Westat developed CECTR to support and evaluate Food and Drug Administration-funded tobacco regulatory science research and training programs.
Cassandra Stanton, Ph.D., a Westat senior epidemiologist, directed the development of this special issue. Dr. Stanton and Michael Halenar, a Westat research analyst, co-authored the preamble and organized a team review of the articles.
