Legacy Warner Series Event and Webcast – October 23 – Fifteen Years After the Master Settlement Ag
Thursday, October 10, 2013
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
The Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) between the major tobacco
companies, 46 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories
was the largest civil litigation settlement in U.S. history, with the central
purpose to reduce smoking - and particularly youth smoking - in the United
States.The MSA has had a significant impact on preventing youth smoking,
but challenges remain.
On October 23, 2013, Legacy, National Association of
Attorneys General and RTI International, a non-profit research institute, will
host a Warner Series lecture that brings together Attorneys General and public
health and tobacco control experts to explore the MSA's successes, challenges
and implications for public health policy for years to come.
The event will be held at the National Press Club in Washington,
D.C. and will be live-webcasted and archived for a national audience.
