Event | Regulating the retail supply of tobacco: moving research toward practice

***Earlybird rates include a 25% discount available until 20 December 2018***

For those working toward Smokefree Aotearoa 2025, regulating the retail supply of tobacco is essential to help denormalise the product for the next generation, assist those trying to quit, and promote smokefree communities.

To frame the case, advocates need options for reducing supply that have a robust evidence base. Securing regulatory change will also need support from within the retailing sector.

Register now for this 1-day Public Health Summer School course, to hear the latest evidence.
