Researchers combine public service with secondhand smoke study

Three researchers from Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics (HOBI) serve on the organizing team for the Florida Health Policy Leadership Academy within UF’s Bob Graham Center for Public Service. They also recently combined efforts to publish a study on secondhand smoke with surprisingly high exposure rates.

The study was guided by the article’s senior author, Jennifer LeLaurin, Ph.D., who is a research assistant professor in HOBI. The two other HOBI co-authors are Ramzi Salloum, Ph.D., associate professor, and Jaclyn Hall, Ph.D., research scientist.  

Ruixuan Wang, a Ph.D. student in the College of Public Health and Health Professions’ Department of Health Services Research, Management and Policy, led the article’s authorship.
