Nicotine is a central component of FDA’s Comprehensive Plan for Tobacco and Nicotine Product Regulation; however, nicotine misperceptions remain prevalent in both the medical community and general public. This webinar will feature a scientific exploration of nicotine and addiction, as well as recent research on nicotine understanding. This will be followed by perspectives on education strategies to improve nicotine perceptions and discussion on what stakeholder or stakeholders are best positioned to implement these strategies.
