Keynote Speaker

Professor Ruth Malone

Professor, Social and Behavioral Sciences, University of California, San Francisco

Editor-in-Chief, Tobacco Control

Title: Phasing Out the Sale of Cigarettes

Professor Malone is internationally known for her research on the tobacco industry, focused broadly on the public relations aspects of the tobacco epidemic, particularly the strategic activities of U.S.-based companies aimed at undermining public health and tobacco control policy. She has also published studies examining the tobacco industry’s targeting of marginalized groups through both product advertising and corporate activities. Currently, she is studying the tobacco industry’s ‘corporate social responsibility’ initiatives and their implications for public health policy, the tobacco industry and the U.S. military, and why businesses voluntarily stop selling tobacco. Her research is funded by the NIH (National Cancer Institute) and the California Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program. Professor Malone is currently pursuing interests in how to begin to talk and think about an endgame strategy for the tobacco epidemic. She has served as an expert consultant to the CDC, the US Department of Justice, and the World Health Organization. Since 2009, she has served as editor-in-chief of the leading tobacco control policy journal, Tobacco Control, published by the British Medical Association.

Title: Nicotine and tobacco research in Indigenous contexts: realising real world impacts and healthy Indigenous futures

Dr. Maddox’s (Modewa Clan, Papua New Guinea) program of research has focused on developing population based Indigenous heath info-systems using community driven processes. This research has been generating primary data platforms to identify critical gaps in understanding Indigenous health, including mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health and wellbeing. Such health information systems work with Indigenous communities and health service providers to obtain information to better understand, inform and evaluate health service programs and policies. His program of research has included a strong focus on commercial tobacco use, exploring tobacco related morbidity and mortality, and having strengths-based conversations about respectful relationships and preventing domestic violence.
