Preventive Medicine Sixth Special Issue

The November 2019 Special Issue of Preventive Medicine is the sixth in a series that focuses on behavior change, health, and health disparities. 

Select researchers that participated in the 2018 Vermont Center on Behavior and Health 6th Annual Conference were invited to contribute to the Special Issue based on their exemplary scholarship and research on opioids, tobacco, and treatment adherence. VCBH Director, Dr. Stephen Higgins, once again acted as guest editor for the special issue and organized the selection of papers.

Considerable attention is given to the ongoing U.S. opioid epidemic and the critical need to develop clinical infrastructure to meet the growing demand for opioid-related clinical services. Selected papers also address tobacco use and adherence to medical regimens.
