Many U.S. tribal casinos that closed this year due to COVID-19 have reopened with new smoke-free indoor air policies. This webinar, a panelist discussion, will highlight the new Smoke-Free Tribal Casinos resource produced by the Public Health Law Center, the American Indian Cancer Foundation, and the American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation. Panelists will discuss the health and financial benefits of smoke-free casinos, describe important policy considerations, and share strategies for public health advocates to collaborate on these efforts.
