E-cigarettes and Youth Discovery Minute

Join Professor Alexandra Loukas as she discusses the alarming jump in e-cigarette use within the past year among high school and middle school-age students.

Loukas’ research focuses on adolescent and young adult problem behavior development, and tobacco use and cessation. She has a special interest in examining how factors from multiple ecological levels (e.g., family, school, culture) interact to protect youth from negative health outcomes. She is the Barbie M. and Gary L. Coleman Professor in Education within the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education.
