Session: Tobacco Control: Charting a Course in a Sea of Uncertainty
4247.0: Tuesday, November 9, 2004: 4:30 PM-6:00 PM
Tobacco Control: Charting a Course in a Sea of Uncertainty
Recent events have altered the landscape in tobacco control, including program cuts by state legislatures and health departments, virtually eliminating some (Mass.) and severely limiting capacity among others. The RWJF/AMA SmokeLess States program came to an end after 10 years of providing capacity to private-sector initiatives in scores of states, and voluntary health agency support is also diminishing. Federal support cannot fill the void. This session is a discussion of the current vitality of state-level tobacco control, and of the challenges that face the future of our movement.
