From Data to Decision: how Associate Professor Becky Freeman’s research is shaping vaping policy

The Sax Institute’s video series, From Data to Decision: The Power of Research in Policy, delves into the intersection of research and public health policy. This series aims to shed light on how scientific research influences policy decisions that shape our health landscape. This is the second in our series, following our interview with Professor Bronwyn Hemsley.

In this episode, we look at the evolving landscape of nicotine vaping regulation both in Australia and internationally with Associate Professor Becky Freeman from the University of Sydney. Associate Professor Freeman shares her insights on how research is driving policy changes and vice versa. She discusses the challenges and successes in regulating vaping products, the impact of her research on policy, and the importance of collaboration between academia, NGOs, and policymakers.
