Aberdeenshire Local Tobacco Alliance (ALTA) is to hold an event focusing on E:cigarettes.  The event will provide an awareness of e:cigarettes and the impact they are having on society and policies whilst identifying the challenges they are creating within key priority groups.  It’s anticipated that the event will be an excellent opportunity to provide future recommendations and create a uniform wide response to this emerging product, the e:cigarette.

ALTA is delighted to welcome keynote speaker Professor Linda Bauld, Professor of Health Policy, Director of the Institute of Social Marketing and Dean of Research at the University of Stirling.  She is also Deputy Director of the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies, a UKCRC Centre for Public Health Excellence covering 13 Universities. In August 2014 she also took on the role of Cancer Research UK’s cancer prevention champion (the CRUK/BUPA Chair in Behavioural Research for Cancer Prevention). This involves a part-time secondment to CRUK to lead their new cancer prevention initiative.

The event will provide the opportunity for individuals to contribute to two breakout sessions.  The focus of the sessions will be:

Number Title Theme
1 Young People The impact of e:cigarettes on young people
2 Pregnancy Is there a role for e:cigarettes  in supporting pregnant women who smoke?   What do we know and what are the challenges?
3 Mental Health Does e:cigarettes have a role in Mental Health?
4 ADP E:cigarettes are a shared responsibility. What are the challenges and how do we progress?
5 Policy Development Grampian stand towards e:cigarettes and influencing policy
