UW Tobacco Studies Program

This program was established at the UW SPHCM in 2002 with initial funding from the American Legacy Foundation (Legacy) in conjunction with the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) as part of their STEP UP project (Scholarship, Teaching, and Education Program for Tobacco Use Prevention). Now funded by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH), the program offers a tobacco studies curriculum and provides scholarship funding and mentorship for MPH and other health science and policy students interested in pursuing a concentration in tobacco use prevention, treatment or research.
