Title:  Tribal Sovereignty and e-Cigarette Companies:  Emerging Concerns
Date:  Friday, April 12, 2019
Time:  12 – 1 P.M. EDT


Coco Villaluz, Clearway Minnesota

Joshua Hudson, National Native Network

Rae O’Leary, Canli Coalition

Char Day, Americans for Nonsmokers Rights

Terra Houska, Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Health Board

Webinar Goal:
Provide more information and awareness to tribes, and to help connect tribes with appropriate resources and tools to aid in refusing any deal-making with e-cigarette companies.

The Problem:
e-Cigarette companies are targeting tribes to engage in a partnership with them, enticing tribes with incomplete and incorrect information that e-cigarettes are effective cessation devices, and with money to pay for e-cigarette program personnel and free or low cost devices.

Funding for this webinar was made possible by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention DP 18-1808 National Network Approach to Preventing and Controlling Tobacco-related Cancers in Special Populations.  Webinar contents do not necessarily represent the official views of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
