Westat Staff Coauthor New Article on a Mentor Training Program to Improve Scholarship in Tobacco Regulatory Science

Mentoring programs are not one-size-fits-all. This is especially true for the emerging and unique field of tobacco regulatory science. Westat staff members Cassandra Stanton, Ph.D., and Amy Solis are among the coauthors of a new article on this issue, Implementing and Evaluating a Mentor Training to Improve Support for Early-Career Scholars in Tobacco Regulatory Science. The article appears in June 2020 issue of Nicotine & Tobacco Research.

The article

  • Explores the challenges of mentoring in this distinctive field
  • Assesses the implementation of a blended training program for senior investigators who serve as mentors for early career researchers working in this field

The assessment found the training to be valuable to overall mentoring objectives, and that the training comprises a novel curriculum for investigators engaged in mentoring early-career researchers in tobacco regulatory science.
