Dana Mowls Carroll researches ways to help people quit commercial tobacco use with a particular focus on working with American Indian and rural populations. Reflecting the interests of her community partners, she applies methodologies ranging from secondary data analyses to qualitative research and clinical trials. She also contributes to the evidence base on potential cigarette product standards, such as reducing levels of nicotine; which is another avenue for addressing commercial tobacco use disparities. In 2023, her contributions to co-creating smoking cessation resources for American Indian persons were highlighted by the White House as part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s Cancer Moonshot Agenda to end cancer.
