The Union

Union Scientific Section meeting: Tobacco control

Room: Sir F Drake – Westin

Attendees: All members

The Union’s scientific sections give members the opportunity to affiliate with others who share the same interests and collaborate on research, publications and projects. One of their principal activities is to propose sessions and contribute to the planning of The Union World Conference on Lung Health, the largest annual conference focusing on lung health issues as they affect low- and middle-income populations. They also participate in the governance of The Union through the General Assembly.

Non-members are welcome to attend the section meetings to find out more.
