Since the 1950s, the tobacco industry has killed millions of Americans and harmed tens of millions more, all while targeting kids and communities of color, driving up healthcare costs, and poisoning the environment with toxic waste. It’s time to end this, and communities have the evidence and authority they need to take action. In recent years, public health experts throughout the U.S. have considered a range of policy approaches that states and localities could adopt as part of a comprehensive approach to eliminate commercial tobacco use.
In this 30-minute webinar, two seasoned public health attorneys will provide an overview of endgame policy strategies and the current state of the tobacco endgame and will explain why reducing tobacco use can advance racial and health equity.
