Within general medicine, Dr. Rigotti's special interest is in preventive medicine with a focus on reducing tobacco use, the leading preventable cause of death worldwide. Throughout her career, she has advocated to have health care systems be more active in addressing their patients' tobacco use.  She founded and directs Mass General's Tobacco Research and Treatment Center, which combines a clinical program offering state-of-the-art tobacco dependence treatment with a research group that develops and tests smoking treatment interventions in health care settings that include hospitalizations, adult and pediatric primary care and specialty care. She has also evaluated tobacco control public policies.  She is a Past President of the Society for Research in Nicotine and Tobacco and has contributed to and edited U.S. Surgeon Generals Reports on Tobacco.  She chaired the Tobacco Task Force (quality improvement team) of Partners HealthCare and served as Course Director of the Preventive Medicine and Nutrition course at Harvard Medical School for many years.

A second focus for Dr. Rigotti is women's health and women's careers in medicine. She is a founding member of MGH Women's Health Associates and serves as Director of Mass General's Office of Women's Careers.
