The Public Health Unit of ATINER is organizing a Small Symposium on “Tobacco Prevention and Control” as part of the 6th Annual International Conference on Public Health, 22-25 June 2020, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Health and Medical Sciences.

The aim of the symposium is to bring together academics, researchers, practitioners, and emerging professionals committed to best practices in tobacco control and prevention. The symposium will explore the latest evidence on what works in global tobacco control and how to apply current research findings and best practices in tobacco prevention, advocacy, and policy. Emerging topics in tobacco prevention and control will also be considered. We look forward to open dialogue with all presenters and attendees. You may participate as presenter of one paper or observer.

Fee structure information is available on

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized, including a pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine-tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycenae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit.
