Behavioral epidemiologist Elizabeth Klein will present “How Visual Attention Informs Health Decisions: Eye Tracking Research in Tobacco Control.”
Klein is a public health research expert in the field of tobacco control. Her work has focused on primary, secondary and tertiary prevention strategies within priority populations of youth and young adults, as well as rural adults at high risk for tobacco use.
