Conference on youth access to tobacco

The Foundation's program, Bridging the Gap: Research Informing Practice and Policy for Healthy Youth Behavior, was designed to improve understanding of school, community, state and national policies and environmental factors affecting youth diet, physical activity, obesity, and tobacco, alcohol and drug use, and to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions to prevent youth obesity and tobacco use.The purpose of this project is to collect basic information on the key policy and environmental factors likely to affect use, and to use that information to document actual impact on youth alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use, attitudes and harm. This contract funds a one-day meeting to bring together researchers and government officials whose primary focus is youth access to tobacco to discuss the current state of research on this issue.
