Adding Smoke to Breath

What’s on offer?

Five minute introduction to webinar and the research into breath, breathing and tobacco that underpins the event.

This leads to a 25 minute prerecorded presentation and 30 minutes interactive discussion led by the presenters.

What’s it about?

We often take breath, and being able to breathe easily, for granted - until, that is, something happens that makes this difficult. 

This event will introduce the work of two research projects that have looked at the long-term effects of adding smoke (in the form of tobacco smoke) to people's breath.  It asks why tobacco has had the power it has had to cause such harm to people.  The local area focus is Bristol, which has a strong tobacco past, but the findings are relevant to the whole country and indeed the world. 

Attending will give you a greater awareness of the importance of breath and breathing and will enable conversations about how and why tobacco has had such devastating effects on people.
