Our President, Lynn Crothers and Past President, David Duffy were delighted to attend a very successful event at the Scottish Parliament recently to mark 50 years of ASH Scotland.  The parliamentary reception was hosted by Jackie Baillie, MSP and the Cabinet Secretary for NHS Recovery, Health and Social Care, Neil Grey addressed the members along with ASH CEO, Sheila Duffy. Students from Larbert High gave a thoughtful talk about being part of a tobacco free generation. 
Lynn and David were delighted to represent the Institute where they were able to share the long-standing relationship the Environmental Health profession has with ASH Scotland.
Lynn Crothers also represented the Institute the following day at learning event hosted by ASH Scotland on how the tobacco industry is shifting the focus from cigarettes to other products including vapes.  She participated in an enforcement workshop where they discussed the price of e-cigarettes, how discounts and bundle deals are attracting people during a cost-of-living crisis, and how they’re capturing the attention of young people in particular with prices that suit their pocket money budget.
