Controlling Your Own Density:
Strategies to Reduce the Number of Tobacco Outlets in Your Community
May 3rd, 2016 11:00am PDT/ 2:00pm EDT

Because the density of tobacco retailers is associated with increased tobacco use and initiation, many communities are implementing strategies to reduce the density of tobacco outlets, particularly in low-income neighborhoods and communities of color where tobacco retailer density is disproportionately high.

This webinar, hosted by ChangeLab Solutions as part of the CDC Office on Smoking and Health (OSH)’s point-of-sale webinar series, discusses the importance of density reduction as a tobacco control strategy. Experts explore different approaches for reducing density and outlined the legal issues involved with addressing existing retailers. One guest discusses San Francisco’s equity-focused density reduction ordinance.
