Online registration is closed. We WILL be accepting walk-ins for this event. If you would like to attend, but have not gotten a ticket, arrive at The College of Physicians between 5PM-5:30PM.
Tobacco is heavily marketed in retail spaces, particularly in urban communities. Combined with ready availability, advertising can increase consumption of unhealthy products and contribute to poor health. In particular, outdoor and point-of-sale tobacco advertising has been shown to increase smoking initiation among adolescents, undermine smokers' quit attempts, and promote relapse among former smokers. In this Grand Rounds, panelists will discuss retail tobacco advertising in Philadelphia, its role in Philadelphia smoking rates and disease, and solutions for addressing the problem.
This event is free to the public, but requires pre-registration.
Join us for all three Grand Rounds this season. Sign up here:
