Why do we have a WordPress Blog?
We have a lot of people working around the world researching tobacco and alcohol and we feel we need to spread this information as wide as possible. Using social media is a large aspect of that; the centre and many of its applicants are active on Facebook and Twitter.
What is our work?
Our work includes developing strategies for behaviour change in tobacco and alcohol use, assessing risks, identifying measures to reduce harm, monitoring the tobacco and alcohol industries, and developing effective public policies to improve public health and wellbeing.
We have established a cohort of early career researchers, to provide a teaching programme that trains and engages the wider research and policy community that research tobacco and alcohol.
We also facilitate policy development by informing policy makers of the latest scientific research on tobacco and alcohol use.
We’re not linked to the tobacco or alcohol industry and our research is conducted without industry funding or influence.
