As the world confronts the continuing pandemic of deaths caused by tobacco use, a research program led by noted scholar Geoffrey T. Fong offers scientific evidence for policies that fight the epidemic worldwide.
Founder and chief principal investigator of the program, Fong will discuss its impact during the 30th J. Warren Perry Distinguished Lectureship, sponsored by UB’s School of Public Health and Health Professions. Dr. Fong’s talk is titled “The use of scientific evidence in the fight against the global tobacco epidemic: Examples from the International Tobacco Control Policy Evaluation Project.”
The event takes place at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 25 in 147 Diefendorf Hall, South Campus.
