2018 ReTOOL Alumnae Ifeoma Ibe and Samantha Joseph were recently published in the Journal of Smoking Cessation. Ms. Ibe worked in ReTOOL mentor Dr. Ramzi Salloum’s lab and Ms. Joseph worked in Dr. Jinhai “Stephen” Huo’s lab during the 2018 program; Dr. Salloum and Dr. Huo were co-investigators on this study. Their study, “A content analysis of free smoking cessation mobile applications in the USA,” sought to analyze the quality and content of smoking cessation apps using the U.S. Public Health Service guidelines. The conclusion was that these apps need major improvements in adhering to the U.S. Public Health Service guidelines and in overall quality.
