The use of e-cigarettes and vaping devices among local youth has grown dramatically in recent years. As part of its ongoing efforts to reduce tobacco use in Greater Cincinnati, Interact for Health is sponsoring two programs:
Brian King, Deputy Director for Research Translation at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office of Smoking and Health, is the keynote speaker for both programs. He will cover the following topics:
The Sept. 4 tobacco summit will also feature the release of data from the first-ever Greater Cincinnati Adult Tobacco Survey and showcase local partnerships to reduce tobacco use.
Registration is required for both events. Please visit https://www.interactforhealth.org/reducing-tobacco-use/. For more information, contact Megan Folkerth at email@example.com or 513-458-6631.
Interact for Health regularly conducts research and collects data in order to monitor and evaluate our region’s health status and to measure public opinions about health policy.
Our Health in Action stories highlight the innovative work our grantees are doing to help reduce tobacco use, address the opioid epidemic and ensure that children can access health care through school-based health centers. We also interview people working on those issues at other organizations across the country to learn what works for them.
