Program Overview
Announced by the FDA Commissioner in 2017, the Comprehensive Plan for Tobacco and Nicotine Regulation places nicotine, and the issue of addiction, at the center of the Agency's tobacco regulatory activities. During this educational activity, Dr. Callahan-Lyon will address the multi-year roadmap to better protect youth – with an emphasis on the epidemic of youth e-cigarette use – while helping addicted adult smokers quit. Topics to be covered include Regulatory Policies on Addiction, Appeal, and Cessation; Science-Based Review of Tobacco Products; and the Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan. The educational activity will highlight FDA’s public education efforts to help educate youth, and young adults about the dangers of tobacco use and to encourage addicted adult smokers to quit. Additionally, this educational activity will provide updates on changes to the policy framework that focuses on flavored tobacco products, including ENDS products marketed to youth, flavored ENDS products, flavored cigars, and menthol in combustible products.
