WEBINAR: Equity at the Tobacco Point of Sale

October 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

How can health equity inspire local policy work? What commercial tobacco prevention strategies at the point of sale can promote health equity? How can the policy process build community power?

To find out, join the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, the National League of Cities, and ChangeLab Solutions for a one-hour conversation on embedding equity in local policy efforts at the commercial tobacco point of sale. You’ll hear firsthand experiences from staff who have worked in diverse communities in Savannah, GA; Denver, CO; and San Antonio, TX, and gain exposure to new policy strategies and resources to promote equity.
