Tobacco Control Science Evidence Academy
November 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$35
The field of tobacco research is an almost constant stream of information about new products and regulations, from e-cigarettes to changing age restrictions to the best methods for harm reduction. These topics, and the debate surrounding them, are vital to a complete understanding of public health today, but it can be difficult to stay up to date on the best and most current research. The Tobacco Control Science Evidence Academy seeks to unpack all of this information by connecting researchers, health professionals, advocates, and policy makers, to share their work, as well as to accelerate the process of integrating research findings about tobacco prevention and control into public health and clinical practice.
The Tobacco Control Science Evidence Academy is hosted by the University of Pennsylvania sites of the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN) and the Prevention Research Center (PRC). The CPCRN and the PRC are funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Cancer Institute, and seek to improve health, reduce disparities, and bridge the gap between research and practice.
