Equitable Policy Making in Commercial Tobacco Control

Derek Carr, J.D., and Jessica Breslin, J.D., from ChangeLab Solutions present “Equitable Policymaking in Commercial Tobacco Control.” This presentation addresses the importance and need for applying a health equity framework in every step of the policymaking and implementation process. It requires not only working to reduce tobacco-related health disparities, but also moving further upstream to address the social and structural determinants—the root causes—of tobacco use and poor health.
