Conference 2015

2015 CEASE Annual Conference

THE RIPPLE EFFECT: Communities Making Waves Through Tobacco Control

October 9th and 10th 2015

Morgan State University


CEASE Baltimore is pleased to invite you to attend our 2nd annual conference, The Ripple Effect: Communities Making Waves Through Tobacco Control. The year 2015 brings new research, new opportunities and new problems to the field of tobacco control. Join us to share your knowledge and expertise on the power of community, as we move toward a world where tobacco has no power and every neighborhood is healthy.

This year’s conference incorporates feedback from our 2014 conference by expanding youth participation through a day long program on Friday, October 9th for middle and high school students. The Youth Health Sciences 2015 conference will give our youngest researchers and advocates a forum to demonstrate their skills. Students are equal advisors in developing the program content and structure, which will cover a variety of health issues. With the support of the Baltimore City School’s Office of Community Engagement, 300 students will participate, presenting their own research, health messaging and policy strategies.

On Saturday, October 10th, we will bring together local, national and international speakers to disseminate best practices and promising research in tobacco prevention, education, cessation and policy. Last year over 200 people gathered at our inaugural event.
