The current study examined changes in prevalence of e-cigarette use and perceptions of the harmfulness of e-cigarette and combustible cigarettes following a campus-wide tobacco ban. Undergraduate students completed surveys of tobacco use and perceived product harmfulness. Four samples were collected: in 2013 prior to the ban (n = 792) and in fall 2014 (n = 310), 2015 (n = 208), and 2016 (n = 417). E-cigarette use increased in the years following the ban (p = .01) while combustible cigarette use decreased from 2013 to 2016 (p = ...

OBJECTIVE: Female post-secondary students typically engage in less physical activity than their male counterparts. Given that women have greater anxiety sensitivity (ie, fear of arousal-based body sensations) and anxiety sensitivity is inversely related to physical activity participation, this study sought to determine if anxiety sensitivity mediates gender differences in self-reported physical activity. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: A sample of 802 post-secondary students completed the Anxiety Sensitivity Index-3 and a Lifestyles Questionnaire in September 2017...

Drug overdose is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50, a crisis that is driven by an increasingly potent supply of illicit opioids. College-aged adults are more likely than any other age group to engage in opioid misuse. Naloxone, the antidote for an opioid overdose, can save the life of an opioid overdose victim if it is readily available and administered quickly. The University of Texas at Austin implemented a collaborative model for proactive opioid overdose prevention in 2016. This model includes stocking naloxone in residence halls and providing it to police officers, training resident advisors and police officers to respond to suspected overdoses, and engaging student pharmacists in a service learning program to increase naloxone access and awareness among university students...
