The California Tobacco Control Program (CTCP) and the Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program (TRDRP) proudly present a new and stimulating joint conference experience:

Linking Tobacco Control Research and Practice for a Healthier California

April 10 – 12, 2012

This conference is the first of its kind; CTCP and TRDRP are pleased to present a joint CTCP Project Directors’ and TRDRP Investigators’ Meeting.

This promises to be a very valuable experience for tobacco control advocates and researchers throughout the state.  The first day will be science-focused, the second day will combine scientific and tobacco control program presentations, and the last day will be program-focused.  Some conference highlights include:

  • How  tobacco control program and research can support implementation of the new Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act
  • Introduction of two new CTCP tobacco control campaigns on tobacco waste and the tobacco retail environment
  • Presentation of the CTCP Carol Russell and TRDRP Cornelius Hopper Awards
  • Informative tobacco control science and program poster and workshop sessions
