Texas Tobacco Summit

Texas Tobacco Summit


Thank you for making the 2014 Texas Tobacco Summit a success! The Summit, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the first Surgeon General’s report, Smoking and Health: Report of the Advisory Committee to the Surgeon General, was hosted by MD Anderson Cancer Center on June 26th and 27th in Houston. A total of 177 attendees from 59 institutions, organizations, agencies and communities met to discuss the current status of tobacco prevention and control and strategies for the future.

The Tobacco Summit aimed to inform, educate and foster a dialogue among traditional and non-traditional statewide and national tobacco control organizations working towards the elimination of tobacco use and exposure across the state of Texas. This summit served as a key step towards maximizing synergy, minimizing duplication of efforts, complementing each other’s work, and creating a platform to share information and tools with one another.
