Dr Constantine Vardavas has recently joined Tobacco Induced Diseases, the official journal of the International Society for the Prevention of Tobacco Induced Diseases as co-Editor-in-Chief alongside Dr James Elliott Scott.
Constantine Vardavas is with the Center for Global Tobacco Control at the Harvard School of Public Health. Throughout his academic and professional career, Dr Vardavas’ research has focused on the health effects of smoking and secondhand smoke exposure, particularly during childhood and pregnancy, and on tobacco prevention and policy.
In addition, Dr Vardavas has a special interest in efforts to reduce the smoking epidemic affecting Greece and is currently serving as the project director of HEART (Hellenic Action for Research Against Tobacco), a project aimed to apply gold standard tobacco control measures within the Hellenic Region as a means of protecting public health from the ramifications of tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke.
This is a very exciting time for Tobacco Induced Diseases and we welcome Dr Vardavas to his new role.
