Otanez presented in Africa

Marty Otañez, assistant professor in anthropology, was an invited instructor at the two-week global tobacco control course at the School of Health Systems and Public Health, University of Pretoria, South Africa, September 30 - October 4. While there he gave many lectures and presentations, including “A Human Rights Based Approach to Tobacco Control with special attention to Alternative Livelihoods for Tobacco Farmers and Farm Workers,” and “Carving Tobacco Out of Trade Agreements: The Future of Tobacco Control Practices and Industry Regulatory Challenges.”
