Bio Statement

Dr. Vidrine's research focuses on eliminating health disparities through investigating potential "windows of opportunity" for promoting health behavior change, developing and evaluating the impact of tailored health risk communications, evaluating potential mechanisms underlying changes in risk perceptions over time in the natural environment, disseminating evidence-based tobacco cessation interventions to underserved populations, and implementing and evaluating healthcare systems-level interventions. Although the primary emphasis of her work to date has been on tobacco, she is very interested in other cancer risk behaviors such as cancer screening.

Dr. Vidrine completed a Mentored Research Scientist Development Award funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): Health communications and risk processing among smokers (Project PRISM). The study examined real-time, momentary changes in risk perceptions in the natural environment among smokers attempting cessation. She was subsequently the PI of a R01 funded by the National Cancer Institute: Literacy and Smoking Risk Communications (Project INFORM). The primary aim of this study was to examine how health literacy influences responses to smoking risk messages manipulated in terms of message framing and emotionality. Most recently, she the PI of a CDC-funded group randomized trial (R18) to evaluate the efficacy of Ask Advise Connect within the Harris Health System community health centers. Results indicated that Ask Advise Connect resulted in a 30-fold increase in smoking cessation treatment enrollment compared to the current recommended standard of care (Ask Advise  Refer; AAR). The results are currently in press in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. She led a parallel trial conducted in a healthcare system that caters to insured individuals, and results yielded a 13-fold increase in treatment enrollment compared to AAR. The results were recently published in JAMA Internal Medicine. She is the PI of one completed and one ongoing grant funded by the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). The completed grant supported the implementation of AAC in a single Federally Qualified Health Center, and the second was a larger grant to implement AAC throughout a large, safety-net healthcare system. She is also the PI of a Medicaid 1115 Waiver (DSRIP) project to implement AAC throughout four Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs).

Dr. Vidrine is also currently a co-investigator on two NCI-funded R01s: Reducing Tobacco Related Health DisparitiePI:Wetter, and Enhancin Cancer Outreach for Low-Income Adults with Innovative Smoking Cessation (MPis: OJ Vidrine and Prokhorov), and an institutional seed money grant: Health Status and Health Behaviors Among Cancer Survivors: A Population-Based Study (PI: Elting). She was supported by a National Cancer Institute funded R25 postdoctoral fellowship in cancer prevention .

Dr. Vidrine has a joint appointment in the Department of Behavioral Science at MD Anderson.
