CPH Associate Dean Speaks About Tobacco Sales in Philadelphia

Temple University College of Public Health’s Associate Dean of Academic Affairs Jennifer Ibrahim

Speaking with the Philadelphia Inquirer, the College of Public Health’s Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Jennifer Ibrahim lauded Philadelphia’s small businesses that have halted the sale of cigarettes.

"While it was fabulous when CVS decided to stop selling tobacco products, the decision by small businesses to stop selling tobacco speaks to our local values - these are local people saying that we do not want to sell a deadly product to our friends and neighbors," said Jennifer Ibrahim, an associate professor of public health at Temple University.”

Ibrahim, who also serves as the associate director of the Public Health Law Research Program, most recently has been investigating means to address tobacco use through cessation treatments and through tobacco control policies.
