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.

In addition to this study, Dr. Pearson’s research primarily focuses on the negative health outcomes associated with tobacco use in addition to the regulation of tobacco products.
