We’re joining CADCA’s Research Into Action webinar series this week on Why Point of Sale Matters. Elizabeth Gerndt, Project Director at Counter Tools, will provide evidence on how the retail environment and point of sale play a huge role in the health of our communities, looking specifically at the impact of point of sale on e-cigarette usage.
We’ll discuss industry spending patterns and retailer density, as well as consider the impact of the retail environment on quit attempts and youth tobacco initiation. We hope participants will gain an understanding of why policies and interventions that focus on the point of sale are key to decreasing tobacco use.
The webinar is Thursday, April 16th, 2020 | 1:00PM EST

About Research Into Action:
CADCA’s Evaluation and Research team invites you to join our bi-monthly webinar series Conversations: Putting Research into Action—the bridge between scholarly research and day-to-day coalition efforts. Throughout the year, we moderate live conversations with substance misuse prevention experts and participating coalition members. This is your opportunity to learn about the latest research and its implications for coalition work and ask pertinent questions of experts in their fields.
The Geographic Health Equity Alliance (GHEA), a CADCA initiative, is a CDC funded National Network dedicated to reducing geographic health disparities related to tobacco and cancer. We define geographic health disparities as the differences in health behaviors and health outcomes related to where people live, work, and play. Our network supports the implementation of effective public health practices in places that need them the most. We work closely with state tobacco and cancer programs and their partners to provide training and support on how to reduce health disparities and improve the health of communities across our nation.
