Tobacco-related research abstract submissions due

September 01, 2016 Dental professionals who have research to share related to tobacco control are invited to submit their abstracts by Sept. 30 to organizers for the National Conference on Tobacco or Health.

The National Network of Public Health Institutes' conference, scheduled for March 2017 in Austin, Texas, will feature poster presentations and breakout sessions on topics such as cessation and health systems transformation, health equity and non-cigarette tobacco and nicotine products.

Abstract submitters should choose one topic/program area to which their submission corresponds, and a panel of experts and practitioners will review all submissions for possible inclusion in the conference.

The World Health Organization says the "tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, killing around 6 million people a year."

Registration is open for the March conference. Visit NCTOH.org for more information.
