New Generation Tobacco Products: Big Tobacco’s Candy Land
Presented by Elaine C. Lyon, MA, Public Health Consultant
During this seminar, we will review efforts at tobacco prevention and learn about so-called New Generation Tobacco Products: Hookah, Electronic Cigarettes, other new products, and revamped “older” products (i.e. candy flavored spit tobacco). Actual products will be displayed so that you can learn about their use and availability, firsthand and secondhand health impacts, and how they are uniquely marketed to youth.
Specimen Collection Follies
Presented by Jeffrey Lavender, MBA, MT (AMT), CLT (HHS)
Properly collecting a specimen for analysis is the most critical part of testing. An improper or inadequate specimen can lead to improper or inadequate test results. In this session, we will take a light-hearted approach to how to properly collect a specimen, and the consequences of when that goes wrong.
