“‘Like Smoking a Popsicle’: Young Adult Perceptions of Flavored Cigarillos and Implications for Flavor Policy”

The Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods (PRCHN) will host a talk titled “‘Like Smoking a Popsicle’: Young Adult Perceptions of Flavored Cigarillos and Implications for Flavor Policy” as part of its seminar series.

This talk, held Wednesday, Sept. 21, at noon via Zoom, will consider policies restricting menthol cigarettes and characterizing flavors (other than tobacco) in cigar products. Researchers will present findings from the Cigarillo Flavor and Abuse Liability, Attention, and Substitution in Young Adults (CFLASH) study on perceptions of flavor, considerations for how flavor is conceptualized, and how young adults may respond to flavor restriction policies.

Presenters will be:

  • Catherine Osborn, project manager of the CFLASH study; 
  • Sarah Koopman Gonzalez, research scientist at the PRCHN; and 
  • Stephanie Pike Moore, center analyst at the PRCHN.

The PRCHN seminars aim to foster conversations and new collaborations, create opportunities to address health concerns and aid in the work to achieve health equity in our communities. All members of the community are invited to attend.
