Academic Honors

Sobering Findings—While many people like to think that advertising has no effect on them, Sean Lucan, M.D., believes ads do have an impact on our behavior and decisions. He recently conducted a survey of advertisements at each of the 68 subway stations in the Bronx, and found higher numbers of alcohol advertisements—particularly those in Spanish—in impoverished neighborhoods. Furthermore, he and colleagues observed a correlation between alcohol advertisements and poor dietary habits, such as high sugary drink and low fruit-and-vegetable consumption, and associated medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. In connection with his research, which published in the March 7, 2017 online issue of the Journal of Urban Health and was the subject of a Huffington Post article he penned about the study, Dr. Lucan was asked to offer his expert opinion at a New York City Council meeting on a proposal to ban alcohol advertising from the NYC transit system. He is associate professor of clinical family and social medicine.
