The Tenth Annual C. Everett Koop Conference – It’s Not Just Cigarettes Anymore

Tobacco use in the population has changed dramatically with many novel products entering the market in the past few years. Cigarettes remain the most commonly used product among adults - and the most deadly. In addition to potentially lower-harm tobacco products, like electronic cigarettes, we face more use of other combusted products like marijuana - especially in states where recreational use is legal. In the clinic or ambulatory setting, we struggle to deliver advice to the many constellations of tobacco and marijuana use. The Tenth Annual Koop Conference will embrace the complexity of these issues by addressing many different aspects of inhaled use of substances.

Submission deadline: Monday August 13, 2018 at 12:00 pm ET

The Planning Committee invites the submission of abstracts for poster presentations at the Tenth Annual C. Everett Koop, MD Tobacco Treatment Conference. We encourage the submission of abstracts describing research in nicotine and tobacco. Abstracts may focus on tobacco use in all forms, including smokeless tobacco and electronic nicotine delivery systems (e-cigarettes), as well as prevention and cessation efforts, tobacco control policy, Tobacco 21, marijuana integration, and product regulation, among other topics. Abstracts should summarize empirical research findings, and will be evaluated by the committee on the basis of scientific merit.

All presenters must register for the meeting.
