Webinar Invitation: Defending Tobacco Control Funding
Tuesday, March 8, 2011
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
Many states continue to see unprecedented threats to the funding for their tobacco prevention and cessation programs. Budget shortfalls have created an environment where even states with long-standing and well-funded programs are facing elimination. Please join us for a one-hour webinar that will serve as a refresher of some of the key messages and tools available to help protect program funding. We will also hear about two states – Iowa and Montana – who have been fighting hard this session to preserve their funding. Staff from the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the American Cancer Society will present most of the information. The call will be moderated by Chris Sherwin from the American heart Association.
There will be a limited number of lines for this webinar, so please sign on early.
