[ATG] Attorney General Zoeller appointed to the Board of Directors of The American Legacy Foundation
Start Date: 6/12/2014 All Day
End Date: 6/12/2014
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS. – Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the American Legacy Foundation, a national public health organization dedicated to ending tobacco use in the United States. General Zoeller serves as one of two Attorneys General on the Board, which provides strategic direction for the organization’s mission to create a tobacco-free generation. 

“It is an honor to be asked to serve on Legacy’s Board,” said General Zoeller.  “For more than 15 years, attorneys general have been working with Legacy in an effort to protect Americans from the harmful effects of tobacco products through a public campaign and I am looking forward to working with Legacy, my colleagues and other professionals to tackle one of the nation’s most important public health problems.”

Legacy was established out of the landmark 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) between tobacco companies and 46 states and five U.S. territories, which resulted in the companies paying billions of dollars to the states and put strong limitations on the tactics the tobacco companies use to advertise and market their deadly products to young people. It is a requirement of the MSA that the American Legacy Foundation's Board of Directors include two Attorneys General.

“Attorney General Zoeller’s dedication to protecting consumers is a perspective we value as we try to save lives from tobacco, and we look forward to his service on the Board,” said Robin Koval, President and CEO of Legacy.

Legacy envisions an America where tobacco is a thing of the past, where all youth and young adults reject tobacco use.  Legacy’s proven-effective and nationally recognized public education programs include truth®, the national youth smoking prevention campaign that has been cited as contributing to significant declines in youth smoking; EX®, an innovative public health program designed to speak to smokers in their own language and change the way they approach quitting; and research initiatives exploring the causes, consequences and approaches to reducing tobacco use. Located in Washington, D.C., the foundation was created as a result of the November 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) reached between attorneys general from 46 states, five U.S. territories and the tobacco industry.
