Barbara Piñeiro-Nero: "Ask-Advise-Connect: Counseling treatment adherence influences quitline treatment outcomes among safety net healthcare system patients"

            This study presents data from a 34-month implementation trial evaluating an Ask-Advice-Connect intervention in 13 community health clinics designed to address clinic and patient level barriers to Quitline treatment enrollment among low-income populations.

Erika Pinsker: "Smoking characteristics and cessation among Hispanic veterans participating in a proactive tobacco treatment trial" 

Dr. Pinsker’s research examines smoking characteristics and cessation outcomes among Hispanic veterans compared with non-Hispanic veterans participating in the Veterans Victory Over Tobacco proactive tobacco treatment trial.

Samantha Schiavon: "African American smokers with strong social support achieve smoking cessation at higher rates than Caucasians with higher motivation to quit"

              Samantha’s research assesses how race (Black v. White) moderates the influence of social support on the relationship between motivation to quit and smoking cessation among a group of smokers in a community correctional facility in Birmingham, AL.

Moderators: Jennifer Cantrell, DrPH, Associate Research Professor at New York University College of Global Public Health, and Melanie Boekmann, DrPH, a postdoctoral fellow at the Medical Faculty of the Heinrich-Heine-University Dusseldorf, Germany.
