Chat #3: Achieving the Tobacco Endgame
Tuesday, August 24, 2021
1:30 - 2 PM ET / 10:30 - 11 AM PT

Tobacco use is a leading cause of preventable disease and death and a major risk factor in the development of cardiovascular disease. Of the approximately 480,000 Americans who die from smoking each year, 35% of those deaths are from cardiovascular disease. While cigarette smoking rates have decreased in recent years, the number of youth and adolescents using new forms of tobacco, such as e-cigarettes or vaping, has skyrocketed placing decades of progress at risk.

Join David McGoldrick, AHA Federal Grassroots Manager, as he speaks with DC staff about the tobacco problem facing the United States, including: 

  • How the AHA is advocating federally to reduce tobacco use and addiction in the country
  • The association's new movement to empower youth to make a difference in the fight against vaping and other tobacco use
  • How you can help

Special guest: Emily Horowitz, Government Relations Manager
