Tobacco Prevention and Control in Rural America
CADCA’s Geographic Health Equity Alliance (GHEA) is partnering with the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) and the Maine Public Health Institute at the University of Southern Maine to present the webinar “Tobacco Prevention and Control in Rural America,” on October 30, 2020 from 1 – 2 pm EST. Erika Ziller and Martha Elbaum Williamson will present the findings from their report “Advancing Tobacco Prevention and Control in Rural America,” along with an introduction by Chris Kinabrew. Public health professionals, health department leaders and tobacco control advocates should view this webinar to understand the rural context and how it may affect tobacco prevention and control efforts, learn about rural tobacco prevention and control activities in rural areas and hear strategies and recommendations for advancing tobacco control in rural communities across the country. The webinar will also highlight examples of tobacco prevention and control efforts underway in rural communities that can be replicated and scaled to reduce the prevalence of commercial tobacco use and improve public health.

By the end of this webinar, participants will:
a) Understand the rural context for tobacco prevention and control
b) Understand the challenges and opportunities for improving health through tobacco prevention and control in rural communities
c) Have increased knowledge of rural initiatives relating to tobacco prevention, cessation and the promotion of smoke-free air
d) Be able to identify tobacco control strategies and interventions that have been implemented across rural America
