Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids Holds 2006 Meeting to Promote Use of State Tobacco Settlement Funds for Prevention and Cessation Programs
The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids organized and hosted a two-day national meeting October 19–20, 2006, to raise awareness of the need for tobacco prevention funding and to create strategies to make the most of available funds.
Some 80 tobacco control advocates and 71 tobacco prevention and cessation program managers attended the meeting. Representatives from national partner organizations also attended.
Attendees received a CD-ROM that contained seven advocacy tools, designed to help promote funding for tobacco control programs and keep the issue alive for the public and policy makers.
