Description

On behalf of the Tobacco Studies Program, please join us for a seminar with Phillip Gardiner, Dr. P.H., University of California Office of the President, Tobacco Related Disease Research Program (TRDRP).

This seminar will speak on the topic of menthol, tobacco industry targeting of African American youth, and approaches to reducing tobacco-related health disparities. The FDA has banned all cigarette flavors except for menthol, even though menthol likely makes it easier to start smoking and harder to quit. The tobacco industry has targeted menthol brands at African Americans and youth, causing a disproportionate burden. How do we tackle this part of the tobacco epidemic?

Dr. Gardiner is trained as a survey researcher and behavioral scientist, who served for 15 years as the Social and Behavioral Sciences Program Officer for the TRDRP.  He speaks nationally on critical issue to tobacco control, including menthol in cigarette products, electronic cigarettes, and tobacco related health disparities.

The seminar will take place on Tuesday, March 27th from 12:00-1:45pm in Hogness Auditorium. Directions from Health Sciences can be found here:

This event is open to UW affiliates and the public.
