Faculty of Health Sciences tenured Associate Professor Rima Nakkash has headed the Tobacco Control Research Group and the AUB tobacco-free campus task force since their inception. She explains the challenges they've faced in working to influence government policies, in order to create regulations that in turn change social norms and individual behavior. 

Evidence-informed advocacy in partnerships with others in society has been key to some successes -- and lessons learned are now being applied to the fight against COVID-19.
