Reducing tobacco use in US

Despite declines in tobacco use in the United States, hundreds of thousands of Americans still die every year from smoking-related causes. ENDING THE TOBACCO PROBLEM: A BLUEPRINT FOR THE NATION, a new report from the Institute of Medicine, examines which prevention and treatment interventions are most promising to further reduce tobacco use. It also looks at barriers to action and policies that need to be changed or adopted to lower rates of smoking. The report will be released with a one-hour public briefing.

11 a.m. EDT Thursday, May 24, in Room 100 of the National Academies' Keck Center, 500 Fifth St., N.W., Washington, D.C. Those who cannot attend may listen to a live audio webcast and submit questions using an e-mail form at http://national-academies.org.
