Warner Series: It’s Not a Coincidence, It’s Profiling: Perspectives on Tobacco as a Social Justice Issue

April 26 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Tobacco is not an equal opportunity killer. For decades, millions of Americans have been disproportionately affected by tobacco use, and it's not a coincidence. Join the Truth Initiative for a live panel discussion where you'll learn what can be done to eliminate tobacco-related health disparities for all populations.
African Americans, those in low-income neighborhoods, LGBTQ communities and individuals with mental illness have been the target of profiling by the tobacco industry. The Truth Initiative's #StopProfiling campaign shines a light on how even today tobacco industry marketing singles out these communities. Join the Truth Initiative as Jayne O'Donnell from USA Today moderates a panel discussion, It’s Not a Coincidence, It’s Profiling: Perspectives on Tobacco as a Social Justice Issue. You'll hear personal and professional perspectives on the problem of tobacco use and be a part of a discussion about what can be done to eliminate tobacco-related health disparities for all populations. Panelists:
  • Congresswoman Dr. Alma S. Adams, North Carolina - District 12
  • David Casey, Vice President, Workforce Strategies, and Chief Diversity Officer, CVS Health
  • Dr. Marjorie Innocent, Senior Director of Health Programs, NAACP
  • Ellen Kahn, Director of the Children, Youth & Families Program, Human Rights Campaign
