State Tobacco Funding:

 

From Code Yellow

to Code Red

Regional Strategy Sessions hosted by

the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the Tobacco Control Network

 

Background:
Although tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., tobacco control programs throughout the country faced severe funding cuts in 2011. Now is the time to prepare to reverse this trend in 2012.

 

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the Tobacco Control Network invite state and local health department staff and advocacy partners to hear the latest news on state tobacco funding, in anticipation of the soon to be released "A Broken Promise to our Children” report. Each session will also showcase an example of how state health departments and advocacy organizations have worked together systematically to raise awareness about the impacts of tobacco control efforts, advocate for sustained tobacco control funding, and defend against budget cuts.

Confirmed Speakers:

·Karla Sneegas, Tobacco Control Network/Indiana Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Commission

·Pete Fisher, Danny McGoldrick, and Meg Riordan, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids

·Additional representatives from State Health Departments and Advocacy Partners TBA

 

Dates and times:
