For Thursday’s Late City Edition, producer Erica Getto sat down with Kathleen Bachynski, a doctoral student at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, to discuss smoking bans in public spaces. Bachynski was among the researchers behind the paper “Banning Smoking In Parks and on Beaches: Science, Policy, and the Politics of Denormalization,” published in the July issue of Health Affairs. Tune in as we explore smoking bans, their shifting reception, and their public health and political implications.
