Dr. Wewers investigates tobacco cessation among rural Appalachians who smoke and use smokeless tobacco. This work involved partnerships with community health departments and rural county extension agents. Most recently, she was funded through a R21 mechanism to investigate smokeless tobacco marketing approaches among Ohio Appalachians. This project involves testing a novel methodology that characterizes geographical patterning of pro- and anti-tobacco exposures in an economically disadvantaged region.
