NIDA TV Spotlight: Tobacco Partnership with FDA

Video length: 0:53


Dr. Compton:

NIDA has a very robust tobacco program.

We are working in the areas of tobacco prevention, trying to prevent the onset of tobacco use and improve the health outcomes of youth and adult all across America.

In particular I'd highlight for you our collaborations with the Food and Drug Administration Center for Tobacco Products.

For instance we are undertaking a landmark giant study on tobacco use in the United States where we will be following some 50,000 persons ages 12 and older to determine what happens to them as the use tobacco and quit using tobacco to look at the benefits of the changes in regulations of tobacco that FDA may be implementing.
