Public Health Advocacy Conference
50 Years after the Surgeon General’s Report: Accelerating Tobacco Endgame Strategies in the United States
The Public Health Advocacy Institute, in conjunction with the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium and Northeastern University School of Law invite public health and tobacco control advocates to join us as we provide a blueprint to identify laws, regulations and policies that can:
Reduce smoking rates to near-zero;
Give consumers true freedom of choice by eliminating addiction from the equation;
Consign non-smoker exposure to tobacco smoke to the dustbin of history; and
Finally complete the process that began with the 1964 Surgeon General's Report on Smoking and Health.
This meeting, the first of its kind in the United States, will highlight federal, state and local actions that will lead to an end to tobacco-caused addiction, death and disease in this country. Re-imagining tobacco control as a means to truly end a public health problem that still kills more than 400,000 Americans each year is the next chapter in the movement that began 50 years ago when Surgeon General Luther Terry released the first Report on Smoking and Health. Registration is limited and subject to the approval of the conference organizers.
