Assistant Professor Sonya Dal Cin Interviewed on 1320 WILS

On January 5, 2012, Assistant Professor Sonya Dal Cin spoke with Michael Cohen of 1320 WILS’s “Capital City Recap” about her recent study of smoking in movies. Her research, which focused on children between the ages of 10 and 14, indicated that children who have been exposed to greater numbers of smoking scenes in movies are more likely to start smoking at an earlier age than those who don’t encounter as many of these scenes.
