Lecture invites youths to consider cigarette-cancer link

While smoking rates have declined across Ontario to about 19 percent of the general population, young people use tobacco at a higher rate.

UWindsor biology professor Lisa Porter, a cancer researcher, is one of three speakers addressing this issue at Trash the Ash! Cancer Talk 2011: Tobacco, the first in this year’s Schulich Windsor Health Lecture Series. The free public event will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 26, in the Hangar on the St. Clair College campus.
