Events - China Tobacco Control Research Symposium

From Research to Action

Held in October 2011, the China Tobacco Control Research Symposium offered an exciting and educational forum for our China tobacco control colleagues. The Symposium provided opportunities for attendees to learn more about the latest research findings that are specific to China and understand ways to apply these results to reduce tobacco use and advance tobacco control in China.

Emory Symposium

The planning committee for the Symposium, composed of the China Medical Association, the China Medical Board, and the Emory Global Health Institute –China Tobacco Control Partnership team members, worked diligently for nine months to create the informative agenda where participants learned from each other. 

The results have been gratifying – attendees reported high satisfaction with the Symposium’s content and presentations.  Many expressed their desire to make this conference an annual event. Dr. Yang Gonghuan, former Deputy Director General of the Chinese Center for Disease Prevention and Control, specifically noted that more evidence-based research in tobacco control in China is critical, and that the Symposium is an excellent tool for encouraging such research.
