UNSW expert available to comment on UK smoking bans

UNSW Sydney < 1 mins read

The UK is following New Zealand in introducing legislation to protect future generations of young people from the harms of smoking. The proposed new legislation will make it an offence for anyone born on or after 1 January 2009 to be sold tobacco products – effectively raising the smoking age by a year each year until it applies to the whole population.  

Associate Professor Ryan Courtney is currently the National Heart Foundation Future Leader at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC). His published work includes research on smoking cessation, particularly tobacco smoking in low socio-economic status (SES) and disadvantaged populations. His research has a strong focus on the relationships between social disparities, including socio-economic inequalities and health behaviours and outcomes.
