Camille Kempf Gourdet has nearly a decade of experience in evaluating tobacco and child obesity-related policies at the state level, to help measure their impact on public health outcomes.

Ms. Gourdet has done extensive primary legal and policy research, synthesis, and data abstraction of relevant and existing state-level policies that pertain to tobacco control, medicinal and recreational marijuana, and tobacco control.  

Ms. Gourdet is interested in how targeted anti-tobacco messaging and the regulation of tobacco retailer licensing, sale, and distribution can effectively reduce or prevent tobacco initiation and habitual use. She studies the role of state and local governments in regulating how such tobacco products as e-cigarettes and flavored cigars can be sold, distributed, and marketed. More recently, she has focused on how states have acted as laboratories to experiment with how marijuana can be administered, sold, or distributed for medicinal and recreational purposes in order to promote justice and protect children, adult consumers, medicinal marijuana patients, and the public at large. She has presented her primary legal research pertaining to how marijuana-infused edible products are regulated at national conferences and in peer-reviewed publications.
