POLI-246. Youth Access: Time To Look for Another Strategy?

Phillip M. Wilbur, MA, American Heart Association, phillip.wilbur@heart.org

Learning Objectives: better understand the range of tobacco control options available to advocates and better understand how youth access strategies fit in that range

Abstract: This session will be a lively, interactive discussion focusing on youth access and other retail-oriented strategies that focus on youth. A high level group of panelists will address questions such as: Are youth access strategies working? How do health-oriented youth access strategies differ from similar tobacco industry-sponsored programs? How should youth access strategies fit in a comprehensive tobacco control program? Are other youth-oriented strategies more effective? Should our strategies focus on youth at all?

Additional questions will be invited from the audience. Invited panelists who have agreed to participate include Stan Glantz, of the University of California at San Francisco, Ellen Feighery, of the Public Health Institute, and Mike Cummings, of Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Other panelists may be invited as well.
