Join Men's Health Network & Former Governor Gary Locke at the Washington Smoking Cessation Policy Summit

SEATTLE, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Men's Health Network, American Cancer Society, and American Lung Association will bring together distinguished physicians, key thought leaders, community organizations, and policy makers to discuss the dangers and costs of smoking in Washington State. Among presenters will be Former Washington Governor Gary Locke, Senator Karen Keiser, Senator Jim Kastama, Terry Reid of the Washington State Tobacco Quite Line, and Dr. Bradford Felker of the Department of Veteran's Affairs.

Cigarette smoking is the single most preventable cause of disease and death in Washington. Each year 8,000 people die from smoking-related causes in Washington and tobacco-related disease costs an estimated $1.53 billion in total health care costs to the state annually, according to the WA State Dept of Health Tobacco Prevention & Control Program Report. The Washington Smoking Cessation Policy Summit will present the latest information and statistics on smoking in Washington State, as well as the latest science to help smokers quit this dangerous addiction.
