Tenth Annual C. Everett Koop, MD Tobacco Treatment Conference: It’s Not Just Cigarettes Anymore

Tobacco use in the population has changed dramatically with many novel products entering the market in the past few years. Cigarettes remain the most commonly used product among adults – and the most deadly. In addition to potentially lower-harm tobacco products, like electronic cigarettes, we face more use of other combusted products like marijuana – especially in states where recreational use is legal. In the clinic or ambulatory setting, we struggle to deliver advice to the many constellations of tobacco and marijuana use. The Tenth Annual Koop Conference will embrace the complexity of these issues by addressing many different aspects of inhaled use of substances.

Learning Outcome
At the conclusion of this learning activity, the participant will be able to discuss at least three recent changes in evidence-based care of individuals who use tobacco, tobacco products, or marijuana.

Target Audience
Physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, addiction specialists, social workers, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, dental assistants, tobacco treatment specialists, educators, students and all clinicians who work with tobacco users.

Registration
Registration will be opening soon at: http://med.dartmouth-hitchcock.org/ce

JUULs in Schools: A Panel Discussion about E-cigarette Use and Vaping among Vermont Teens

  • Health Department Conference Room 2B (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
image001.png

Join us on May 31, World No Tobacco Day, for a presentation and panel discussion on the use of JUUL — the e-cigarette brand — among youth in Vermont schools. Hear from students, school faculty members and health officials, including Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD, about the increasing popularity of e-cigarettes and vaping among students, and strategies for protecting our youth from addiction and harm caused by nicotine.

JUUL is a small, easily concealed device, often resembling a flash drive, that delivers a high dose of nicotine. A single “pod” can have the nicotine equivalent of an entire pack of cigarettes. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that can harm adolescent brain development.

According to the Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey, about a third of high school students, including nearly 45 percent of 12th graders have ever used an electronic vapor device.

The Dartmouth Institute Research in Progress Talk: Anna Adachi-Mejia, PhD

Title: Photovoice as a method to engage older adults of color and of language minorities in New Hampshire
Location: WTRB Room 571 E & W; 1 Medical Center Dr., Lebanon, NH

Adachi-Mejia, Anna.jpg

Biography
Anna M. Adachi-Mejia, PhD is the Director of Dartmouth’s Prevention Research Center, the Health Promotion Research Center at Dartmouth (HPRCD). She is an Associate Professor at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, a faculty Fellow with the Center for Program Design and Evaluation (CPDE), and a program member of the Cancer Control Research Program at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Dr. Adachi-Mejia teaches at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, supervises multiple research teams, and collaborates with partners in academic, community, and non-profit organizations across the country. Adachi-Mejia's research leverages her multidisciplinary training and collaborations to apply novel strategies to measure both human behavior and health outcomes. For this presentation, Dr. Adachi-Mejia will describe her grant funded by the Endowment for Health that applies a technique called “photovoice.” The photovoice process inverts the traditional research approach by putting the focus of empowerment on the participants themselves. Participants take pictures, describe in their own words what they photographed and why, and use that information to facilitate improvements in the community. For this study, she asked participants from the Bhutanese, Hispanic/Latino, and Black/African American communities living in southern New Hampshire to think about their experience of aging in New Hampshire, including what was going well for them and what they wanted help with from others. In this presentation, she will describe the extensive academic and community partnerships and the process involved in activating this type of community-engaged research.
