Biography:Laura Solomon is a research professor of family medicine and psychology. Her research focuses on strategies to promote smoking cessation and factors that trigger relapse. She’s particularly interested in ways to help low-income and pregnant smokers stop smoking. Dr. Solomon is involved in the following studies: (a) evaluation of the use of voucher-based incentives to help pregnant women stop smoking during pregnancy and postpartum; (b) comparison of abrupt versus gradual cessation strategies to achieve abstinence; and (c) examination of barriers to seeking smoking cessation services by smokers with high intentions to quit.
