Driving Directions

On March 31st, Legacy will host the first in a series of thought leader panel discussions that delve deeper into one of the key findings from the 2014 Surgeon General's Report on Smoking and Health. The report calls for the rapid elimination of combusted tobacco products as a way to decrease the burden of tobacco-related death and disease in the United States.

Electronic or e-cigarettes represent an evolving frontier -- one that is filled with promise to reduce the preventable deaths from cigarettes and potential risk of undermining youth prevention, smoking cessation and indoor air restrictions -- posing challenges for tobacco control practitioners, policy makers and regulators.

A possible "end game" objective, this Kenneth E. Warner Lecture Series will discuss the issues surrounding the elimination of combustible cigarettes (and possibly all combustible tobacco products) and the evolution of e-cigarettes and alternative products that could play a role in ending the tobacco epidemic once and for all.

No registration or call-in required to view the live webcast. Click "View Webcast" to participate. To attend in person, please RSVP below.

The event will be held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.and will be live-webcast and archived for a national audience.
