Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drugs

In This Section


Welcome to the Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drugs Section!

April 2014 


Dear APHA ATOD Members (and others interested in the ATOD field) --


In addition to celebrating National Public Health Week, we are planning an exciting Section Program for this year’s Annual Meeting to be held November 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana! This year's ATOD Scientific Program features cutting edge presentations of the latest research, policy and practice in our fields. We are also hosting a panel featuring Dr. Troyen Brennan, Chief Medical Officer of CVS Caremark, who will discuss the CVS decision to remove tobacco products from their shelves nationwide. Details about these and other events will be released soon.


We look forward to seeing you soon,

ATOD Section Leadership
