Free Webinar: Tobacco Control in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands
Please join us for an important webinar featuring the tobacco control work underway in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands. These are two regions with unique challenges in eliminating tobacco-related health disparities. The region’s youth are vulnerable to targeted marketing by the tobacco industry and multiple jurisdictions across the Pacific make creating consistent tobacco control policy uniquely difficult. In 2015, Hawaii became the first state to raise the age of purchase of tobacco products to 21 years old. Join us as we discuss current tobacco control efforts and future plans to surmount challenges facing the region.
