Taking action on smoking and health
You are here: Home » About us » Conference June 2013 Towards a generation free from tobacco
...how can countries achieve ambitious tobacco-free targets?This engaging and interactive international conference looked at the ideas and actions that will drive us towards a generation free from tobacco – a time when ideally the only people smoking would be the small number of adults who knowingly choose to do so.
This conference brought policy makers, leaders in public health, academics and advocates of tobacco control from across the UK and Europe together with the people who implement smoking related health and tobacco control strategies at local level. Together we will explore a future free from the harm caused by tobacco.
ASH Scotland is grateful for the support of the University of Stirling, University of Edinburgh and the UK Centre for Tobacco Control Studies for their involvement in organising this conference. Prof Gerard Hastings OBE, Prof Linda Bauld, Prof Amanda Amos and Prof Jeff Colin along with the ASH Scotland Senior Management Team form the conference advisory committee.
