Georgia State Receives Grant to Study Young Adult Attitudes toward Flavored Tobacco

Dr. Kymberle Sterling, assistant professor at Georgia State University School of Public Health, has received a two-year, $275,000 grant from the National Cancer Institute to study how young adult smokers perceive the risk of smoking flavored little cigars and cigarillos (LCCs), which the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate. The grant will allow Dr. Sterling, with investigators at the University of Hawaii-Manoa Cancer Center and the University of Maryland College Park School of Public Health, to develop a prognostic tool that identifies LCC risk perceptions and predicts susceptibility to smoke LCCs among young adult cigarette smokers.
