Overview

This Evidence Academy will be a one-day conference designed to bring together researchers and health professionals, advocates, and policy makers, to accelerate the process of integrating research findings about tobacco prevention and control, into public health and clinical practice.

The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN) and the UPenn Prevention Research Center (UPenn PRC) are funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and seek to improve health, reduce disparities, and bridge the gap between research and practice. This event is also sponsored by the Penn Medicine Abramson Cancer Center, a world leader in cancer research, patient care, and education.
