The October issue of the Hawai’i Medical Journal features an article focusing on how tobacco taxes and settlement monies have been appropriated by the Hawai’i State Legislature to improve our citizens’ health.
The article, co-written by John A. Burns School of Medicine Communications Director Tina Shelton and Dean Jerris Hedges, is the second of two articles in back-to-back issues of the Hawai’i Medical Journal which explain JABSOM’s commitment to tobacco cessation and treatment.
