Alma Adams takes on the tobacco industry

Alma Adams, a two-term U.S. representative from Greensboro, N.C. and founding member of the board of directors at Truth Initiative®, has long been an advocate for tobacco prevention. We sat down with Dr. Adams to talk about her efforts in the North Carolina legislature, her path to quit smoking after more than 30 years and her thoughts about the Truth Initiative scholarship in her name, the Dr. Alma S. Adams Scholarship for Outreach and Health Communications to Reduce Tobacco Use Among Priority Populations.
