Public Opinion About Paying People to Quit Smoking

  • Financial incentives (FI) are effective in achieving tobacco cessation but remain controversial in their use
  • RCT using experimental survey design, comparing support for a “treatment,” medication, or financial incentive for tobacco cessation
  • 1,092 surveys collected at transportation depots in Philadelphia
  • No statistical difference in rate of support among 3 treatment types
  • Predictors of FI support: Current smoker, age, (internal LOC)
  • Significance: No disfavor towards the use of financial incentives,
  • versus medications or generic treatment for tobacco cessation.
  • Certain subgroups favor support of financial incentives.

Study of Time Savings Realized Through Task Shifting to Community Health Workers (CHWs) in Kenyan Health Facilities

  • Kenya faces a severe health worker shortage
  • We aim to determine the time value of CHWs to health facilities and to determine the components of essential CHW service and its associated cost
  • Data collection: 7 sites, 1-2 facilities per site
    • 1) Interview 2-3 CHWs and 1-2 health care providers per site
    • 2) CHW to fill out task and supply diaries for 14 consecutive days
  • Preliminary data

Measuring & Enhancing Stress Resilience in Youth in Dental Clinic Settings

  • Promoting oral health is an important, yet often neglected area of public health practice.
  • Stress may negatively impact children’s oral health and contribute to health disparities.
  • - stress during dentist visit can increase blood pressure; have long term consequences.
  • - stress experienced chronically from neighborhood violence may reduce coping ability.
  • Pilot study - identify stressors experienced during routine dentist visit.
    • - piloting measure of stress responses during routine dentist visit.
    • - gain insight into history of stress exposure and vulnerability.
    • - pilot deep breathing brief intervention.

Pregnancy Weight Management Study

  • Maternal obesitypoor maternal-child health outcomes
  • Few interventions decrease rates of excessive pregnancy weight
  • gain or postpartum weight retention.
  • Psychosocial predictors of maternal obesity: self-efficacy, weight
  • locus of control, & perinatal depression
  • We now propose a 4-component intervention: motivational
  • appeals, environmental aids, peer & task-oriented support.
  • We completed 3 focus groups to write the text messages we will
  • use during the intervention.
  • We start pilot enrollment January 1, 2011.
