Closing Comments from the Chair
April 13, 2005: Global Tobacco Epidemic
Dr. Carmona closed the meeting by summarizing many of the issues he heard articulated during the day. Although we have come a long way in tobacco control efforts, there is still a long way to go and we need to continue to build partnerships beyond the confines of our own borders. Furthermore, we need to improve our ability to translate the science that we do have into effective interventions. Dr. Carmona offered his commitment to share the information with HHS Secretary Leavitt and to continue to move forward on global tobacco control efforts.
Dr. Carmona thanked CDC and the Office on Smoking and Health for their leadership role in convening the meeting and expressed his appreciation to Committee members, speakers, and the public.
The meeting adjourned at 4:25 pm.
