Hundreds of prominent leaders in tobacco control will be engaging attendees through a number of lectures, panels, workshops and poster sessions focusing on the following program areas:

Tobacco Control has encountered substantial changes including both successes and challenges since the last NCTOH and since President Obama signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act into law, both over three years ago. Join us for the 2012 conference and prosper from the experience and knowledge that our speakers bring. Easily search the preliminary program by key word and/or speaker name to get a better idea of what we’ll be offering – and make sure to check back regularly for updates!

Don’t miss the screening of Addiction Incorporated! The true story of research scientist Victor DeNoble and his experience with a major tobacco company. If you think you know everything there is to know about cigarettes and nicotine, this film will startle you with its vital, previously undisclosed information.

The movie includes interviews with a number of tobacco control leaders and NCTOH speakers including Greg Connolly, Clifford Douglas, Matt Myers, Mitch Zeller and others. Following the screening there will be a discussion and Q&A period with Victor DeNoble; Charlie Evans; and director and executive producer Charmaine Parcero; moderated by Mitch Zeller.

Join us for popcorn, soda, light snacks and a great networking opportunity!
