Smokeless Tobacco

The PDC remains active in a research collaboration with the Murtha Cancer Center,at Walter Reed Bethesda, on smokeless tobacco use in the U.S. Military.  A pilot study, with ongoing data collection, is under way at PDC sites at JBSA-Lackland and Fort Bragg.  Concept development for additional collaborative research studying the effect of oral health on the cost and efficacy of the medical treatment of selected chronic diseases is currently under way.  Both studies are outstanding opportunities for interaction between the dental, medical, and nursing health professions.
