Dr. Susan M. Abughosh is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences and Administration and a member of the Institute of Community Health at the University of Houston (UH), College of Pharmacy. She is involved in teaching in both the professional Pharm D program as well as the graduate program in Pharmacy Administration and Public Health. Prior to joining UH, Dr. Abughosh was an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Healthcare Sciences, a Lecturer at Northeastern University, and a Senior Instructor in the Cambridge College Healthcare Management Masters Program in Boston, MA. She holds a PhD in pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacoeconomics from the University of Rhode Island where she completed her postdoctoral training. In her current research, Dr. Abughosh focuses on examining waterpipe and cigarette smoking habits among Middle Eastern Americans as well as among different populations around the globe including Jordan, China, Taiwan, India, Saudi Arabia, and Nigeria. The purpose of the research is to gain insight into why some individuals smoke through studying predictors for both cigarettes and waterpipe smoking, as well as predictors of willingness to quit. Disparities in smoking habits among different ethnic groups are also investigated. The long term goal is to develop effective prevention/intervention strategies tailored to each country. Her interest areas also include persistence to long term therapies among elderly populations and the effects of healthcare policies on health outcomes.
