Research focuses on the economic impact of tobacco on health and healthcare expenditures. Dr. Max and her colleagues have worked for over two decades to develop models to estimate the costs associated with smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke.
This research involves developing models for smoking-induced heath care expenditures in the state of California as well as within a large HMO. The models include both static and dynamic estimates.
