Smoking in the time of COVID: Challenges and opportunities in Australia and the United Kingdom
The George Institute for Global Health invites you to a #GeorgeTalks on 'Smoking in the time of COVID: Challenges and opportunities in Australia and the United Kingdom' to mark World No Tobacco Day 2021. The event will be held on Thursday 3 June 2021, 6pm-7pm (Sydney AEDT) / 9am-10am (London BST).
The event will be a hybrid event online (via Zoom) and in-person (over canapes in Sydney, Australia).
In marking World No Tobacco Day 2021, we will be convening an expert panel to discuss the impact of the COVID pandemic on smokers in Australia and the United Kingdom. We will discuss the opportunities, challenges and emerging evidence on effective strategies that can support smokers to quit during this window, with long-term benefits for the burden of preventable death and disease.
You can attend the event in-person in Sydney.
