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 and collaborators from the Department of Psychiatry are testing the feasibility of delivering a tailored form of metacognitive remediation therapy to smokers with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. In the past, she has led projects that target Medicaid-enrolled smokers in Southeast Ohio. Her surveillance work includes secondary analyses of population-based data from the US, China, and Italy. Her research in the area of tobacco control policy has involved work with clean indoor air ordinances and tobacco advertising. She currently leads the Buckeye Teen Health Study, which is a project in OSU’s Center of Excellence in Regulatory Tobacco Science. The goals of the study are to examine initiation and transition to tobacco use, including dual use of products, among 1,220 adolescent boys in urban and rural counties in Ohio. Specifically, exposure to advertising, marketing, and general tobacco imagery will be examined for their relation to tobacco use transitions.
