Joan Bottorff – University of British Columbia, Kelowna, Canada

Joan Bottorff talks to ecancer at ICCN 17, in Prague, about tobacco use prevention and utilising social media.


In Canada the rates for smoking are dropping, but there are some demographics, predominately young people, where they are higher than they should be.


Many tobacco companies have begun large advertising campaign through social media, as regulations do not cover this area.


Ms Bottorff also discusses her presentation on projects involving tobacco reduction in gender specified groups, for example young fathers.
