“Tackling Menthol in Flavored Tobacco Restrictions”

On March 22 in Long Beach, LOOP Director Dr. Valerie Yerger presented “Tackling Menthol in Flavored Tobacco Restrictions.”
Dr. Yerger talked about cities that have been successful in implementing a flavors ban. She also shared strategies used by the tobacco industry to disrupt progress.
This was a one-day training on developing and implementing policy campaigns restricting the sale of flavored tobacco products in urban settings.
The goals of the training were to:
  • Increase participant knowledge about flavored tobacco products
  • Provide recommendations tailored for urban counties on policy, messaging, priority populations, and policy adaptation 
  • Share strategies on how to successfully adopt and implement a strong policy restricting the sale of flavored tobacco
