What’s the best way to fight science misinformation? In the case of electronic cigarette use by young adults, a team at the University of Kentucky Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) chose a novel approach — a research-based comic book.
The comic brings to life Dr. Melinda Ickes' research paper “Prevalence and reasons for Juul use among college students,” published in the American Journal of College Health in March 2019. She plans to develop curriculum and programming around the comic book and hopes it will promote non-judgmental discussion of e-cigarette use across all ages.
