2009 Smokeless Summit

The 2009 Smokeless and Spit Tobacco Summit

Summit 2009Registration for the 5th National Summit on Smokeless & Spit Tobacco is now open!  The event will take place September 21 through September 23, 2009 at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center located in Madison, Wisconsin.  This is the only national conference designed specifically to provide cutting-edge information and proven resources to fight against and reduce the use of smokeless tobacco products.

Even with FDA regulation, smokeless tobacco will continue to be sold and cause disease in unsuspecting consumers.  It continues to amaze me how a product when USED AS DIRECTED will KILL people.  Simply unbelievable.

A full agenda is available here and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available for some sessions.  Registration information is available here: http://www.uwosh.edu/smokeless

Register prior to August 31 and get early bird pricing ($350 vs. regular price of $400)

  1. If anyone from KTC.org attends, I think it would be great to hear their thoughts when it is over.

    Often, conferences will provide materials presented at each session to participants since they can not attend every session. If any of this material is available after the conference, it would be nice to be able to see it. Maybe we could get a copy to post to KTC.

    1. Coltsfan – GREAT idea. I unfortunately will not be attending and I’m not sure if anyone else from KTC is going to go, but I’ll definitely reach out with them to see if I can’t get copies of any materials that they have available.

  2. Having read your very well balanced program of speakers, I would like to point out that not all smokeless tobacco is for oral use and Toque Snuff, a nasal snuff, has been proven to be 99% safer than smoking. Most medical associations are now aware of the benefits that harm reduction can provide, however few are aware of the further benefit of English nasal snuff. …..

  3. theo – great point. (4,000 members en counting at QSX today). I’ll go on record right now as saying if the Summit wanted honest to goodness quitters represented KTC could produce hundreds at the drop of a hat. Hell… I’ll go one step further and say I’d LOVE that opportunity!

  4. I read through the program, and have a couple thoughts:
    1. I think its great that such a conference exists, and
    2. I’m amazed at the choice of speakers. Among the 20 or 30 “experts” there seems to be only one nicotine junkie: Gruen VonBehrens. And he got clean because he was forced to do so. So here’s a conference geared around educating the community about the dangers of dip, how to quit, and how to avoid getting hooked. Yet NOT A SINGLE EXAMPLE OF A RECOVERING ADDICT. NOT ONE. I’m talkin’, somebody who made an unforced, conscious decision to quit nicotine, and did what it took to get the job done. Surely such people exist? I wonder where they might be found.
