About Us

The Public Health and Tobacco Policy Center (Center) is a resource for communities striving to improve public health through implementing evidence-based policies. The Center provides legal and technical support for policies that reduce the availability of and market for tobacco products; reduce unwanted exposure to secondhand smoke; minimize tobacco advertising and promotion; increase cancer screening rates; and promote healthy behaviors.

We are currently funded to work with certain programs of the New York State Department of Health to develop and support policy initiatives that reduce tobacco-related morbidity and mortality as well as other chronic diseases. We provide legal technical assistance to those seeking public health policy change within New York State.

The center is affiliated with the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium at the Public Health Law Center and is housed in the Public Health Advocacy Institute (PHAI) at the Northeastern University School of Law. PHAI dedicates its legal and advocacy expertise to improve the understanding, commitment, and effectiveness of policymakers and lawyers to protect public health.

The Center is accepting contracts from programs seeking public health policy support. Contact us for more information.
