 I work around the globe to reduce tobacco use, especially in low- and middle-income countries. I have a lead role with the triennial World Conferences on Tobacco OR Health. I have developed smoking cessation programs with emphasis on medically compromised and high-risk populations and advocate for public policy changes related to smoking.
