Cell Phone Use Prevalent Among Drowsy Drivers, Distracted Drivers

June 27, 2016

The study, “Investigating Distracted Driving among Undergraduate Students,” is primarily the work of two former students, Amber Gourdine and Sonia Lee. Gourdine graduated in May with dual degrees – Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Art in public health from Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Lee graduated in 2015 from Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and also majored in public health. Shendell supervised the study, which was conducted during winter to spring 2015. Lee presented the study’s methodology and initial findings with Shendell as an oral presentation at the American Public Health Association conference last fall in Chicago.
