2018 Section on Tobacco Control (SOTCo) Abstracts Program
Abstracts submitted should focus on any aspect of tobacco and child health, including but not limited to, effects of maternal smoking during pregnancy, secondhand smoke exposure and child health, teenage initiation and patterns of tobacco use, media and smoking, emerging tobacco products, intervening with parental smokers during the pediatric office visit, tobacco dependency treatment, quality improvement projects, and tobacco control policy.
Submitted abstracts should fall into one of two categories:
Abstracts will be accepted for poster presentations only. The top abstracts chosen by the Abstract Review Committee may be given the opportunity to discuss their abstracts in a brief oral presentation.
Submission of an abstract will not preclude future submission for journal publication, nor does prior publication nor prior presentation or acceptance at another medical or scientific meeting disqualify submission to this section. Complete the fields regarding previous submission even though this will not exclude the paper from consideration. Priority may be given to papers not previously published or presented.
A note on trainees and early-career physicians: the Section on Tobacco Control (SOTCo) is committed to supporting trainees and early-career physicians' engagement in tobacco control activities in their institutions. As such, we especially encourage trainees and early-career physicians to submit abstracts.
Please note that abstract authors who attend the NCE must register and pay for the meeting (as well as any additional travel and housing expenses). The Section does not have funds to cover these costs for authors of abstracts.
Presenters of accepted abstracts should notify Judith Groner as soon as possible if they must cancel their presentation.
