E Cigarette Summit – 17th November

The E-Cigarette Summit takes place at The Royal Society on Friday 17th November. An important event for those working to reduce the harm caused by smoking. In view of the amount of discussion in the news and elsewhere this could be a lively session!

If you would like to view the full programme please go to www.e-cigarette-summit.com

Since the inaugural meeting in November 2013, The E-Cigarette Summit has been at the forefront of taking forward the scientific and public health discussions around e-cigarettes and harm reduction debates. The Summit has established itself as a neutral environment for scientists, policy makers, medical and public health professionals and stakeholders to come together and look at the latest scientific research and evidence on e-cigarettes and debate their impact.  This year welcomes renowned presenters from many international communities and will look at how the UK’s position differs in its approach to Harm Reduction and will be chaired by Prof Ann McNeill.

The Summit will examine the latest research on health impacts and explore the role of tobacco control in an increasingly diverse and innovative nicotine market.  With smoking levels falling in most developed countries, the Summit will look at the attitudes to harm reduction and its contribution to smoking cessation.

The E-Cigarette Summit provides an evidence based platform to look beyond the rhetoric and understand the issues that lie behind differing perspectives and policy positions. If you would like to have your say and join the debate, please register on-line at www.e-cigarette-summit.com
