In the Spotlight
The FDA has released new training videos to assist retailers in better understanding the tobacco sales requirements of the Tobacco Control Act. These tools can be used in your community to limit inappropriate sales of tobacco products. The public can also help by reporting tobacco sales violations to the FDA through an online form or by calling FDA's Center for Tobacco Products at 1-877-CTP-1373.More »

Early adulthood is a key stage in determining a person's lifelong use of tobacco products. One effective way to prevent the behavior is to establish tobacco-free policies where these adults spend much of their time –at colleges and universities. Such policies also create a healthy environment for the campus workforce and visitors. Join this webinar hosted by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and NACCHO to learn about the implementation and enforcement of tobacco-free policies by different types of institutions, the legal implications, and how you can be involved in the effort. Presentations will be delivered by the Public Health Law Center/Tobacco Control Legal Consortium, Oklahoma State University, North Arkansas College, and The Tobacco-Free College Campus Initiative.
