E-Cigarette Summit USA Plans Revealed

Posted 21st April 2021 by Dave Cross
Organisers have confirmed the full programme for the E-Cigarette Summit USA. The event is set to take place virtually for the second successive year due to the Covid pandemic. It will take place in May but is primarily aimed at experts and policy makers working in the tobacco harm reduction/public health sphere.

E-Cigarette Summit USA will take place over 25-26 May 2021. Interested parties can register for the event now (1), ticket prices range from $295.00 to $895.00 with early bird pricing ending on 30 April.

We recognise that multiple time zones and busy schedules may make it hard for delegates to watch the entire event in real time,” say the organisers, “so pre-recorded presentations will be available to registered delegates 24 hours in advance of the Summit and the live panel debates with Q&A will also be available to watch-back later. Registered participants will have access to all video recordings and PowerPoint presentations on the secure web platform for 6 months after the Summit.”

The opening keynote speech will be delivered by Professor Kenneth Warner, Professor Emeritus and Dean Emeritus in the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan. The closing keynote will be delivered by Ethan Nadelmann, the founder of the Drug Policy Alliance.

The full list of speakers includes a number of people frequently referred to in POTV articles:

  • Dr Jamie Hartmann-Boyce - Senior Research Fellow and Editor, Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford

The organisers add: “As always, The E-Cigarette Summit has a single aim of facilitating respectful dialogue and thoughtful analysis of the latest research and evidence, to deliver the most effective health strategies to reduce smoking related death and disease. The role that e-cigarettes and tobacco harm reduction could play in ending or extending the smoking epidemic is likely to remain one of the most fiercely fought debates in public health history. We cannot answer every question yet, but we believe that progress is not only possible but imperative. Join us to be part of the discussion.”
