Happy New Year from End Smoking New Zealand. What better way to start 2020 than to order a copy of Murray Laugesen (our founder)’s autobiography, My Life in Public Health. Starting his career as a surgeon, Murray worked in India in the 1960s and 70s, where he became involved in public health. He returned to New Zealand where he pioneered tobacco control in the 1980s and 90s. In the new millennium, Murray has had the foresight to see the potential of tobacco harm reduction technologies. Murray has written more about his work at his website, Health New Zealand. This post goes out at sunrise in Christchurch on New Year’s Day 2020.
