Nevada, Reno: Researcher Develops a Consistent Approach to Assess E-cigarette Use

Dr. Jennifer Pearson, assistant professor of health administration and policy in the University of Nevada, Reno School of Community Health Sciences, recently published a study about the policies concerning the use of e-cigarettes in Tobacco Control. Dr. Pearson and co-authors recommend specific focal points that may serve as a starting point for further evaluations of the effects of e-cigarette use. Dr. Pearson’s study recognizes the transient nature of e-cigarettes and therefore the transient nature of public policy associated with them.
