TCN Harvey Leadership Webinar Series
Smoke Damage: Voices from the Front Lines of America’s Tobacco Wars
Monday, March 19, 2012
12 p.m. PT/1 p.m. MT/2 p.m. CT/3 p.m. ET - (90 minutes)
While most tobacco control advocates recognize that tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, even the most seasoned advocate can occasionally lose sight of the individuals and families who benefit from our work. In this webinar, the speakers will highlight the real life stories of loss and pain that remind us of the impact of our tobacco control work, and explain the how the power of personal testimony can be harnessed to bring about tobacco control policy change.
This webinar will be the third in the Tobacco Control Network’s Harvey Leadership Webinar Series, which is dedicated to building new leaders in the tobacco control movement.
