You are invited to join the New York State Public Health Association and New York State Association of County Health Officials for a 2019 fall workshop: “Public Health Impact: Cannabis, E-Cigarettes & Vaping.”
The program content will address implications for public health, cannabis policy and health equity resulting from a legalized program. As New York State considers the passage of policy to establish an adult-use cannabis program, it is imperative that public health stakeholders unite to prepare for potential implications and learn about policy, regulatory and governance aspects related to legalization.
Leading from the cannabis discussion will be the latest on e-cigarettes and vaping in New York State. With the recent enactment of a ban on favored electronic and tobacco products and the upcoming implementation of Tobacco 21 in New York State, e-cigarettes and vaping are a hot topic! Hear from Dr. Barbara Wallace from the NYS Department of Health, local county health officials and statewide advocates with the latest information, the impact on communities and enforcement.
Throughout this workshop, there will be built in time for networking with professionals representing: local health departments; academia; clinical care settings; community-based organizations and others who value the health and safety of communities in New York.
