Ending the Tobacco Epidemic
Tuesday, June 23, 2015; 12:00-1:00pm (Pacific)
In 1964, Dr. Luther Terry released the first Surgeon General’s report linking smoking to lung cancer and heart disease. Despite impressive progress in preventing disease, more than 20 million Americans have died from smoking since then. What more can be done to prevent tobacco-related death and disease?
In the June session of Hot Topics in Practice, Drs. Patrick O’Carroll and Tim McAfee will review the 32nd Surgeon General’s report on this topic—The Health Consequences of Smoking—50 Years of Progress. They will describe the report’s major findings; note the progress made against tobacco-related diseases using evidence-based prevention strategies; review new and evolving challenges, including e-cigarettes; and describe several new “end game” strategies in the fight against tobacco-related disease and death.
Register today and learn how to help end the death and disease caused by tobacco.
