TMAF BOARD MEMBER WINS GROUNDBREAKING, $20 MILLION TOBACCO REGULATION GRANT
What laws, rules, programs, and approaches help to curb smoking? And which ones don’t? A leader of the TMA Foundation (TMAF) is on the receiving end of a $20 million grant from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and National Institutes of Health to help find the answers. The grant will establish The University of Texas (UT) Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science on Youth and Young Adults. The principle investigator is Cheryl Perry, PhD, professor and regional dean of the UT School of Public Health Austin Regional Campus. Dr. Perry is a public member of the TMAF Board of Directors. TMA and the Texas Public Health Coalition are eagerly awaiting the results of Dr. Perry’s research to help inform our antitobacco advocacy efforts.
