Summary of "Substance Use Behaviors in Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Patients: Associations with Mental and Physical Health."

We examined substance use behaviors and risk-stratified associations with mental and physical health, as well as objective indicators of tobacco and cannabis use and concordance with self-report and medical records.
