Towards Tobacco Free Singapore Movement
Press Conference @ National Cancer Center Singapore 15th March 2012
A news conference was called to kick off Towards Tobacco Free Singapore Initiative. This initiative is aimed at school going children in Singapore, highlighting to them the dangers of tobacco addiction. Given that tobacco companies are creating products and campaigns to entice the young to take up smoking, this campaign is especially critical and timely.
The primary drivers of this initiative are A/Prof Koong Heng Nung from Dept of Surgical Oncology, National Cancer Center ; Prof A.J Berrick of Dept of Mathematics, National University of Singapore and medical students from the 2 medical schools in Singapore, Duke- NUS Medical School and Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine NUS.
