Assistant Professor, in the Division of General Internal Medicine/Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, University of California at San Francisco

I am a practicing general internist and a researcher in tobacco control with a focus on populations experiencing homelessness. My research program aims to reduce the burden of tobacco use in vulnerable populations, particularly among those experiencing homelessness, through affecting change at the individual, health systems, community, and policy levels. I use a variety of methodologies, including descriptive epidemiology using national longitudinal and cross-sectional data, policy analysis, qualitative and mixed methods research, and implementation sciences. My work has included both community based participatory research to examine factors associated with high rates of tobacco use among vulnerable populations and implementation research within settings that serve these populations to improve access to smoke-free policies and cessation services.

Webinar Objectives

1.Describe two ways that tobacco use impacts homeless adults

2.Discuss all of the results of a pilot study of a smoke-free home intervention in supportive housing

3.Discuss one other promising strategy to engage with people experiencing homelessness around smoking cessation
