Smokefree Oceania Conference: Call for Abstracts
The Cancer Society of New Zealand is hosting the biennial Smokefree Oceania conference "A Smokefree Oceania: getting there together" on 23-25 October 2013, at the Rendezvous Hotel, Auckland.
The theme of this conference builds on previous Oceania Conferences, with the aim of participants having the opportunity to present the shared planning, direction, learning and action that is required by all people involved in tobacco control across the Oceania region.
The goal is to have a Smokefree Oceania. The challenge is to get there as soon as possible and for those with knowledge and resources to work with others to reach this goal. The call for abstracts is now open.
