Please join the plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the FDA and several of our partners and colleagues as we discuss the proposed FDA rule to prohibit menthol as a characterizing flavor in cigarettes. Presenters will discuss the history of menthol in the United States and the lawsuit against the FDA, including the Citizen’s Petition. Presenters will also offer their thoughts on the proposed rule and share data that supports a menthol ban. Finally, presenters will give their opinions on where we go from here.
Speakers: Dr. Phillip Gardiner (Co-Chair, AATCLC), Chris Leung (Attorney, Pollock Cohen LLC), Dr. Mark Mitchell (Co-Chair, Commission on Environmental Health, National Medical Association), Dr. Geoff Fong (Professor, University of Waterloo), Joelle Lester (Director, Commercial Tobacco Control Programs, Public Health Law Center), and Kelsey Romeo-Stuppy (Managing Attorney, Action on Smoking and Health).
