February 24, 2020 | Media News

Assistant Professor Patricia Zettler recently co-authored an op-ed in The Hill titled, “It’s time to add graphic warnings to cigarettes.” The op-ed was co-authored by Ohio State researcher Theodore L. Wagener, and Tony Yang of George Washington University, with whom Zettler published an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

“These graphic warnings are a way to help ensure that crucial information about tobacco use is effectively communicated to consumers, helping to combat the leading preventable cause of cancer and cancer deaths in the United States,” Zettler and her co-authors wrote.

An expert in health law and FDA law and policy, Zettler joined the faculty at Moritz in 2019 after spending time as a faculty member of the Center for Law, Health & Society at Georgia State University College of Law.
