Tobacco, Proposition 29 and the War on Cancer
On June 5, California voters will decide whether or not to pass Proposition 29, which would add $1 to the cost of a pack of cigarettes. With that initiative as a backdrop, USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center will host a symposium about the status of tobacco and the 40-year-long fight to find a cure for cancer. John P. Pierce, professor of family and preventive medicine, Sam M. Walton Chair for Cancer Research, University of California San Diego, and Robert K. Jackler, professor of otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) from Stanford University will be keynote speakers. Advance registration is required. To register online: www.usc.edu/esvp (code: TCR).

Event Date: Wednesday, May 30, 2012 - 12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
