Looking Back, Looking Forward with Dr. Kenneth E. Warner
Dr. Kenneth E. Warner of the University of Michigan School of Public Health presents the 2011 CAMH Archibald Lecture on the history of and prospects for tobacco control and smoking cessation, examining the success of different measures put in place in the United States since the early 1960s.
This lecture is the 18th in a series that invites distinguished speakers to provide overviews of important developments in various areas of addiction. The series was established to honour the late H. David Archibald, founder of the Addiction Research Foundation, one of the four organizations that merged to form the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in 1998.
Dr. Warner is the Avedis Donabedian Distinguished University Professor of Public Health at the University of Michigan. He has been on faculty at the School of Public Health since 1972 and is director of the university's Tobacco Research Network.
In his long and stellar career, Dr. Warner has focused on the economics of tobacco control nationally and globally. His research has had a major impact at the highest levels. His work has been particularly valuable in bringing new information and analysis to bear on widely held beliefs and misperceptions, such as the breadth of the economic contribution of the tobacco industry. Dr. Warner has won major awards in his field, most notably the US Surgeon General's Medallion by Dr. C. Everett Koop in 1989 and the Luther L. Terry Award for Exemplary Leadership in Tobacco Control (Outstanding Research Contribution category) in 2003.
