The National Conference on Tobacco or Health (NCTOH) is one of the largest, long-standing gatherings for top United States tobacco control professionals. The convening attracts a diversity of public health professionals committed to best practices and policies to reduce tobacco use—the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the United States.
The National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) works alongside a steering committee of agencies, foundations, practice organizations, and program committees to leverage its extensive convening expertise and widespread network of public health institutes, training centers, and dozens of key stakeholders to enhance both programmatic content and the overall experience.
NCTOH conference participants include tobacco control professionals, researchers, and anyone interested in any of the following:
- Examining the latest evidence on what works in tobacco control and how to apply current research findings and best practices in tobacco control policy, advocacy, and programs
- Exploring practical ways to improve tobacco control programs and activities across the United States
- Renewing energy and commitment to the U.S. tobacco control movement
- Exchanging valuable ideas and tips with colleagues
Funding for this conference is made possible (by multiple funders) including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). NNPHI is collaborating with the CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health and other funding organizations on this event.
