Syndemic: How Mental Health, Healthy Eating and Active Living, and Tobacco Combine to Create Health Problems
The webinar will be focused on how multiple factors such as mental health, tobacco, and healthy eating and active living affect a person's overall health and wellness.

The objectives for the webinar include:
- Understanding how mental and physical health and wellness combine with other risk factors (tobacco use, unhealthy eating habits, covid) and chronic conditions (heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer) to create a syndemic
- Engaging community-based organizations in promoting healthy behaviors and supporting community wellness through youth advocacy and community engagement
- Creating sustained health behaviors through building capacity, strategies, and resources to help them with engaging youth-led tobacco control efforts
- Reducing the effects of a syndemic on youth through advocacy of upstream industry initiatives for tobacco and food policy
