Smoke-free homes workshop, 6 February 2020

“Every man has his castle” – Involving fathers in smoke-free homes research
Thursday 6th February, 2020

This workshop will see the launch of findings from the CRUK-funded ‘Fathers who smoke and smoke-free homes’ project, which explores fathers’ views and experience of creating and maintaining a smoke-free home.

We’re also delighted that our colleague Professor Lorraine Greaves, University of British Columbia, will speak on gender-transformative approaches to tobacco control. There will also be opportunities to learn more about other UK-based current smoke-free homes initiatives, to debate and discuss future directions in smoke-free homes research, and a good amount of time for networking too.

Spaces are limited so please email Rachel O’Donnell to reserve your place. We’re very much looking forward to seeing you there!
