Contemporary Tobacco Use Treatment
This three-hour presentation provides an overview of significant changes in the U.S. population who use tobacco, the morbidity and mortality of current tobacco use and the challenges that we face when trying to help this population stop using tobacco. We will discuss evidence-based approaches to tobacco treatment with a focus on the evidence for medication and several examples of behavioral treatment. Finally, we will integrate this evidence in a way that provides meaningful guidance to a provider working with this population.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Identify major characteristics of the current tobacco use population that impacts how we approach treatment
2. Recognize common disease processes related to smoking
3. Identify core principles in evidenced-based tobacco dependence pharmacotherapy
4. Describe several effective behavioral approaches to the treatment of tobacco use


Tobacco Among American Indians
Tobacco use has been viewed as one of the major health risks among American Indian populations. However, tobacco continues to be used as a sacrament of ancient tradition. This presentation will include the expertise and perspectives of Native traditionalists and health professionals regarding the use and abuse of this important medicinal and ceremonial plant.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Explain the evolution of smoking behaviors and tobacco usage among American Indian populations
2. Discuss the importance of cultural norms that impact smoking behaviors
3. Discuss contemporary issues regarding tobacco use among American Indian populations, including youth
4. Provide insight as to the importance of cultural integration of knowledge in contemporary treatment policies with American Indian populations


The New Look of Nicotine Addiction
After this one-hour presentation, participants will be able to identify new and emerging tobacco products that are popular among adolescents and young adults. Attendees will learn about aggressive marketing tactics used by the tobacco industry (e.g., Altria, Juul) to target youth and discuss the potential harms and risks of vaping products used by young people.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Name new and emerging tobacco products
2. Identify marketing tactics used by the tobacco industry to target youth
3. Describe the potential harms and risks to young people who use them


Women and Tobacco Use: Emerging Products and Cessation Resources
This presentation will include an overview of tobacco use in North Carolina, the health implications for female tobacco users, and an evidence-based screening and brief counseling framework (the 5 As). Emerging tobacco products (e.g., e-cigarettes, vapes) and health effects will be discussed, along with education and resources for women of reproductive age to prevent them, or to help them quit, smoking.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Describe tobacco use patterns in reproductive-age women
2. Explain the risk of tobacco use to women’s health
