The COVID-19 pandemic and the high risk of a second wave contributed to the decision the 3rd Scientific Summit on Tobacco Harm Reduction to become virtual! The physical presence and the possibility to meet colleagues and discuss face to face is very valuable to one’s work. Unfortunately, this is lost. However, a new dimension has emerged. The possibility to bring together people from around the globe that one cannot easily achieve in a physical event. We hope to attract top researchers, clinicians, and scientists from diverse fields, from around the world, to contribute to the 3rd Scientific Summit on Tobacco Harm Reduction in a 360° approach.
During the Pre-Summit meeting held on the 19th of May, more than 50 scientists from 25 countries, and 5 different continents participated and discussed the formation of a Tobacco Harm Reduction Association. We aspire to exceed by far the number of participating countries in the Summit. We will make sure to provide state-of-the-art tools to make the experience of this virtual summit memorable. See you there!
