Dr Gilmore shares tobacco findings with EU

Dr Anna Gilmore from the School for Health was in Brussels twice in the past month discussing some of her Tobacco Control Research Group's findings.

Her first visit was on behalf of the Royal College of Physicians Tobacco Advisory Group, of which she is a member, to present the results of the group's latest report, 'Passive smoking and children' in the European Parliament.

Research Officer Michelle Sims and Dr Gilmore co-authored a chapter in the report based on their research on children's exposure to second-hand smoke.

For the second visit she was part of an expert panel invited by the European Commission to the 2010 EU Open Health Forum to discuss whether Better Regulation and impact assessment represent a threat or an opportunity to EU health policies.

The topic of this discussion arose out of work conducted by Katherine Smith, Gary Fooks and Anna Gilmore of the University's Tobacco Control Research Group.
