Koop Scholars in Prevention Science

Support student research aimed at the marketing of e-cigarettes, alcohol, and processed foods

Faculty and students at the C. Everett Koop Institute examine the powerful influences that drive unhealthy, disease-causing behaviors, especially in children—such as tobacco use, binge drinking, and overconsumption of processed foods. They conduct the rigorous science needed to influence public policy and public health. Gifts totaling $25,000 will support a Dartmouth student or recent graduate from Dartmouth or another institution as they learn the ins and outs of prevention science and co-author peer-reviewed scientific papers. Such opportunities for undergraduates ensure that Dartmouth continues to offer the very best fusion of a liberal arts college and top-tier research university.
