Projects on tobacco control
My work on Health Promotion took me to collaborate in the International Tobacco Control Project, the largest scale project evaluating policies, programs and factors associated with smoking cessation. In addition to publications, we worked hard to translate scientific knowledge into health prevention and promotion programs. Most of them were deployed international or nation-wide.
