Online symposium Sex/Gender Differences in Tobacco Control

Logo sex gender tobacco control symposium

Men and women often have different reasons for smoking and experience different obstacles when attempting to quit. As researchers and health providers, it is important to pay attention to these differences in order to address existing disparities in smoking and quitting. But what are these differences exactly? And how can we address them? 

In this free online symposium we cover a range of topics concerning sex/gender differences and issues in tobacco control, such as differences in the triggers and barriers to quit smoking and the effectiveness of national-level interventions.
