Organization: The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASAColumbia)

Posting date: October 30, 2015

Location: New York

PROJECT TITLE: Multilevel Influences on Young Adult Traditional and Alternative Tobacco Product Use

SUMMARY: As more young people attend college, there is a greater need to develop interventions to prevent tobacco use and combat the effects of targeted marketing among college students.  While a growing number of campuses are going tobacco-free to address this need, the enforcement of these policies on campus and their effectiveness remains to be determined.  In addition, colleges in urban settings may be in neighborhoods with a high concentration of tobacco retail outlets which may undermine tobacco-free campus initiatives. The Health Ambassadors will 1) conduct an assessment of tobacco free campus policy compliance and enforcement through direct observation and “street-intercept” interviews with students; 2) begin to develop a program to increase student awareness of various forms of nicotine addiction and use of tobacco cessation services for students currently using tobacco; and 3) conduct other activities related to informing the development and implementation of tobacco free campus policies more broadly.  The Ambassador may also have the opportunity to conduct an environmental assessment of tobacco retail marketing and advertisements surrounding CUNY campuses.  This position has the possibility of transitioning into a field placement for credit towards your degree.

PROJECT AREAS: Tobacco use, tobacco control policies, nicotine dependence, cigarette smoking, environmental assessments, direct observations, neighborhood effects, program development

QUALIFICATIONS:  Student with interest in tobacco and/or drug research and policy, environmental assessments, neighborhood effects on health and/or program development.  Masters or doctoral level student preferred.

ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION: CASA Columbia is a national nonprofit research and policy organization focused on improving the understanding, prevention and treatment of substance use and addiction. Founded in 1992 by former U.S. Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, Joseph A. Califano, Jr, our interdisciplinary experts collaborate with others to promote effective policies and practices.
