Dr. Vijayaraghavan is a practicing general internist at the San Francisco General Hospital and a researcher in tobacco control with a focus on populations experiencing homelessness. Dr. Vijayaraghavan's intervention research stems from collaborations with community organizations. As PI of two grants (22XT-0020,25CP-0002) from the Tobacco Related Disease Research Program, she collaborated with homeless shelters and supportive housing programs to implement interventions to increase access to cessation services and smoke-free policies among homeless clients. As co-investigator (PI Satterfield, DA034253-04) on an implementation and dissemination grant on a randomized controlled trial of computer-facilitated delivery of 5As for smoking cessation, she worked with 3 diverse primary care clinics to improve provider-delivery of 5As. As co-investigator on a community practice based research grant from the TRDRP (PI Guydish, 25CP-002) and SFCAN (PI Guydish, an intramural grant), she is collaborating with homeless shelters and safety net health clinics to improve delivery of cessation services to high-risk populations in San Francisco.
