Tobacco-Related Health Disparities, with Dr. Monica Webb-Hooper
Tobacco-related health disparities are a pressing issue in the area of tobacco prevention and cessation.  Schuyler Lawson sits down with Dr. Monica Webb-Hooper of the NIMHD to discuss the implications of tobacco on communities of color, and why these disparities exist in the first place.  Dr. Monica Webb Hooper is Deputy Director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD).  She is an internationally recognized translational behavioral scientist and clinical health psychologist. She has dedicated her career to the scientific study of minority health and racial/ethnic disparities, focusing on chronic illness prevention and health behavior change. Her program of community engaged research focuses on understanding multilevel factors and biopsychosocial mechanisms underlying modifiable risk factors, such as tobacco use and stress processes, and the development of community responsive and culturally specific interventions. Her goal is to contribute to the body of scientific knowledge and disseminate findings into communities with high need.Teaching NotesResources:Engagement and short-term abstinence outcomes among African Americans and Caucasians in the National Cancer Institute’s smokefreetxt programAddressing underserved populations and disparities in behavior change CDC Tobacco-Related DisparitiesSmokefree Text Messaging ProgramsCredits: Host/Writer/Researcher - Schuyler Lawson, MA Guest - Dr. Monica Webb-Hooper, PhDAudio Editor - Omar BrownProduction Assistant - Sarah Robinson
