Tobacco and Industry Documents Workshop | May 12

The UCSF Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education (CTCRE) is holding its annual one-day workshop on using tobacco and other industry documents for advocacy. This popular workshop highlights how lessons learned from tobacco industry documents also apply to chemical, food, drug and opiate industries. This year, the workshop is collaborating with the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies and Breast Cancer Action to uplift the use of the IDL for breast cancer advocacy, campaign development, and research collaborations.
