James D Sargent, MD
Professor of Pediatrics


My science aims to better understand how media and marketing influence health behaviors. For 20 years, I have conducted population based studies of adolescents and young adults, developing survey techniques to capture media and marketing exposures and examining their association with substance use (tobacco and alcohol), aggression and violence, and risky sexual practices. The translational aim of the research is to influence media and marketing exposures during childhood and adolescence by developing individual interventions and influencing policies.
