Mark Wolfson, PhD
Professor, Department of Social Sciences and Health Policy
Dr. Wolfson's research focuses on (1) the forces shaping public policy on alcohol and tobacco use, and (2) the implementation and impact of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug policy and prevention programs. He is an expert on underage drinking laws and can speak about the best or most promising practices for increasing the enforcement of underage drinking laws and the incidence of alcohol-related problems among college students. Wolfson is also involved in research targeted at assessing, and ultimately preventing, college student tobacco use (including the use of novel products, such as snus) and exposure to second hand smoke.
