We are the Brown University Nicotine Working Group. We study the causes, consequences, and treatments of nicotine and tobacco use. We're here to answer questions about anything we have the knowledge to answer related to tobacco use, ask us anything!
We are member of the Nicotine Working Group (NWG) at Brown University. The NWG consists of many members across multiple disciplines such as clinical psychology, medicine, nursing, epidemiology, social work, and anthropology who conduct research on nicotine and tobacco. Collectively, our work looks at many different people in many different parts of their lives and tries to understand when, why, and how people use nicotine and tobacco products, the problems caused by their use, and the best ways to help quit or reduce harm, even when traditional methods don’t work. We’ll answer whatever questions we have the knowledge to answer!
