"A Precision Medicine Approach to Smoking Cessation Among Native Americans"


October 5, 2018 | 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. | 1-451 Moos Tower

Dr. Dana Mowls Carroll is a postdoctoral fellow in the Tobacco Research Programs at the University of Minnesota, led by Masonic Cancer Center member Dr. Dorothy Hatsukami. Her research interests are in tobacco-related disparities, cancer prevention, and tobacco regulatory science. She received a Ph.D. in epidemiology from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in 2017. She aims to direct an independent research group that contributes to the reduction of tobacco-related morbidity and mortality with a special emphasis on populations that bear the greatest burden—populations that are often understudied and historically underserved. Her presentation will provide an overview of a Minnesota Precision Medicine Collaborative project which seeks to increase access to precision medicine approaches to smoking cessation in the Native American population in Minnesota.
