Warner Series Invitation: Is the Nation on Track to End the Tobacco Epidemic?

Monday, March 26, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

Five Years After the Release of Institute of Medicine’s Tobacco Report:

Is the Blueprint for the Nation on Track to End the Tobacco Epidemic?

Five years ago, the public health and tobacco control communities were given boldrecommendations on how to end an epidemic that kills more than 400,000 adults annually. In this time, the nation has seen historic changes in public policy as well as historic declines in smoking prevalence. Many of the Institute of Medicines’ (IOM) 42 recommendations have been implemented, however, public health leaders recognize that more still needs to be done to achieve full success by 2017 when the report will reach its decade mark. Please join Legacy for a thought-provoking panel discussion examining the IOM report as a tool to measure progress, while highlighting key areas where improvement is required.

Opening Remarks by Harvey V. Fineberg, MD, President of the IOM
