Dr. Ferketich’s research falls into the following areas within the field of tobacco control: smoking cessation, tobacco use surveillance, tobacco policy, and tobacco regulatory science. With respect to smoking cessation, her independent research is largely focused on smokers who can be reached through healthcare providers and the healthcare system. She has led projects that target Medicaid-enrolled smokers in Southeast Ohio and has conducted, and continues to conduct, surveillance-type research in the US and Italy, and, with former doctoral students, in Lebanon and China. Her research in the area of tobacco control policy, has involved work with clean indoor air ordinances and tobacco advertising. Through an RWJF-funded grant, they examined the reach of clean indoor air policies in the Appalachian region of the United States. She currently leads a project in OSU’s Center of Excellence in Regulatory Tobacco Science that addresses initiation and transition to tobacco use, including dual use of products, among adolescent boys in urban and rural counties in Ohio. The objective is to understand how exposure to advertising, marketing, and general tobacco imagery influences these transitions.
