Vuong Do, PhD, received his doctorate in Public Health (Epidemiology) from the School of Public Health, Georgia State University. During his four years at Georgia State, he received the Second Century Initiative fellowship and worked as a graduate research assistant for faculty members of the tobacco control group. He was involved in multiple studies related to tobacco control, such as examining the effect of e-cigarette marketing exposure among American youth, factors associated with concurrent use behaviors of cigarettes and e-cigarettes, and the development of smoking cessation programs. His dissertation examined racial/ethnic disparities in tobacco use, marketing exposure, and the indirect effects of advertising exposure on subsequent use among youth. As a postdoctoral fellow at the CTCRE, Dr. Do will examine tobacco and cannabis co-use patterns among young adults, risk perceptions, and contextual factors to inform cessation programs. In addition, he is interested in studying tobacco and cannabis use and health disparities among racial/ethnic minority groups.
