Eleventh Annual C. Everett Koop Tobacco Conference

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 Eleventh Annual Koop Conference will embrace the complexity of these issues by addressing many different aspects of inhaled use of substances.
