The American Academy of Pediatrics Julius B. Richmond Center of Excellence is soliciting manuscripts to be featured in an upcoming special issue of Pediatrics. The special issue, edited by Sharon A. McGrath-Morrow, MD, MBA, FAAP and Karen M. Wilson, MD, MPH, FAAP will focus on secondhand smoke exposure (SHS) in children and families.

The supplement aims to provide an overview of current research surrounding SHS exposure in children, best practices to reduce SHS exposure, and strategies for pediatric clinicians to address tobacco and smoke exposure in practice. The supplement will also discuss the health impact of thirdhand smoke, exposure to marijuana smoke, and electronic cigarettes. The anticipated publication date for the supplement is fall 2016.
Potential Topics for Papers include:
  • Health outcomes of SHS exposure
  • International impact of SHS on child health
  • Clinical screening and interventions for parents and youth
  • National attitudes about SHS and tobacco use
  • SHS as a factor in poverty, health disparities, and toxic stress
