Dr. Russ McIntire is Assistant Professor at the Thomas Jefferson University College of Population Health. He received his doctorate in Health Behavior and Master of Public Health at Indiana University School of Public Health, Bloomington. His major research interests include identifying and analyzing the social, behavioral and geographic risk factors of chronic diseases among vulnerable populations. Dr. McIntire has performed community health assessments and descriptive epidemiological studies to identify the population-based distribution of behavioral risk factors, such as smoking and secondhand smoke exposure, and health outcomes such as cancer. His recent studies identified and compared disparities in exposure to secondhand smoke among U.S. adolescent race/ethnicity groups and explored the association of neighborhood-based risk factors with prostate cancer in Philadelphia.
