Since the designation of the center in February last year some of the highlights include a new PhD, several articles published, the launch of the web page and the official opening in May 2016.
A new study by Mette Rasmussen and Hanne Tönnesen has just been published on BMJ open. The study compared different smoking cessation programmes.
Vanja Berggren works her first week at the centre and will start a research study. Her focus is on life-style behaviour among immigrants in Sweden and the effects on their health. Vanja has earlier conducted research in African settings and taught in the Middle East as well as at Lund university.
