RESEARCH PROJECTS AT UAMS
Please come back to learn more about the research Dr. Clawson will be doing at UAMS!
Overall, her research program utilizes a social ecological approach to identify tobacco-related inequities and reduce active and passive tobacco and cannabis exposure among children and families, with a specific focus on historically marginalized families and youth with medical conditions (e.g., youth with asthma). She also conducts research on behavioral and psychosocial functioning among youth with medical conditions and their families, including research related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The overarching objective of her research program is to promote health equity across the lifespan and across generations.
She will also continue to work on the below projects .
RESEARCH PROJECTS STARTED AT OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY
IMPACT OF CORONAVIRUS ON PARENTING EXPERIENCES (I-COPE)
The purpose of this study is to better understand the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on family health. More specifically, the project aims to better understand the differences in parent and child health and psychosocial functioning across families with and without asthma and to identify factors of risk and resilience associated with these outcomes. Additionally, this project sought to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on families of color.
IMPACT OF CORONAVIRUS ON YOUNG ADULTS (I-COYA)
This longitudinal study seeks to better understand the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the experiences of college students. More specifically, the project aims to understand the impact of COVID-19 on college student’s psychosocial and behavioral functioning. Given the disproportionate impact of coronavirus on individuals from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, we are particularly dedicated to enhancing our understanding of the effects of coronavirus on young adults of color. Additionally, we are interested in the unique impact of coronavirus on young adults living with chronic medical conditions.
TOBACCO AND CANNABIS EXPOSURE AMONG YOUNG ADULTS WITH MEDICAL CONDITIONS
This study aims to examine rates and correlates of tobacco use, cannabis use, and environmental tobacco and cannabis smoke exposure among college students with medical conditions.
