CADCA’s Geographic Health Equity Alliance (GHEA) and Evaluation and Research Team partnered with Counter Tools to present the latest installment of their webinar series, “Conversations: Putting Research Into Action” on Wednesday, July 15, 2020. The webinar, Tobacco Minimum Floor Price Law and Adult Smoking Prevalence, featured Dr. Shelley Golden and Derek Carr, JD, who presented the findings of their recent article, “Simulating the Impact of a Cigarette Minimum Floor Price Law on Adult Smoking Prevalence in California,” published in Nicotine & Tobacco Research in 2020. They discussed the effects of minimum floor price laws on tobacco use among adults and how coalitions can add minimum floor price laws to their policy change resources.
