“Across Asia Pacific, an estimated 5 million adults vape, with most of them being former smokers who have either quit smoking completely or have cut down significantly using their preferred devices and liquids. In almost every case, they did so against the advice and in defiance of the highly restrictive, disproportionate regulations and bans that continue to be imposed on safer products,” say the organisers of the conference.
Voices 4 Vape(1)(2)(3) will feature Julie Woessner, an active member of CASAA(4). Julie is a Duke University graduate and now retired lawyer who has been active in vape advocacy since 2009. More recently, she was the President of the Governing Board of the International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organisations.
The event is going to be moderated by Nancy Loucas, a passionate tobacco harm reduction advocate who co-founded AVCA(5) in 2015. She is committed to fighting the right to vape and that the choice of reduced harm products is freely available to all smokers.
The pair will be joined by Jena Fetalino, described as having, “a solid background in the publishing industry, joining Mosman Communications Inc. and MEDCOM International in 1992 as Founding President at the age of 28.”
“At the 2014 Stevie Awards for Women in Business held in New York, she was recognized as the Female Executive of the Year in Business Services – Global Category, a first for the Philippines. We are fortunate to now have her working alongside us in the THR advocacy community to present our voice to the global media.”
