November 6, 2003: Public and Private Sector Roles in Tobacco Use Reduction

Following the member comments, Dr. Carmona asked for public comments.

Lyndon Haviland, American Legacy Foundation, directed a question to Dr. Carmona asking what he will do as Surgeon General to insure that youth prevalence rates will continue to decline, especially in the face of state budget crises. Dr. Carmona responded by reiterating his personal commitment to the issue because of his own secondhand smoke-related illnesses as a child. He also believes that as Surgeon General his job is to translate good science in a culturally appropriate manner to the American public. He believes that prevention should always come first.

With no additional public comments, Dr. Carmona turned back to any additional comments from committee members.
