3412.0 Engaging the Underserved: Community-Based Tobacco Programs

Monday, October 31, 2011: 4:30 PM
This session will look at tobacco interdiction interventions in adolescent and adult populations that are often ignored, including deaf and hard-of-hearing youth, prisioners, poor minority populations, and inner city youth. Combating marketing efforts by the tobacco industry require innovative strategies that differ from those used for the general population.
Session Objectives: Discuss interventions to counteract tobacco industry marketing to populations not reached by usual interdiction methods.
