Caracas contact for Philip Morris in its pro-smoking campaigns
1992 Nov 23: A Philip Morris lawyer's report on a Caracas meeting says that AmbioConsult is being recruited for the Latin America IAQ studies, as part of the ETS Consultant Program (WhiteCoats). It says:
This memorandum summarizes the results of meetings in Caracas with Fini de Otero , Ernesto Antich and Dr. Eduardo Souchon concerning the ETS Consultants Program. The purpose of the meetings was to discuss activities that might be undertaken or sponsored by the tobacco industry during 1993.
Unfortunately, neither Dr. Bruno Burger nor the people with whom we have been dealing at Ambioconsult were in Caracas at the time of my visit.

Latin American whitecoat
Dr. Eduardo Souchon (Venezuela) has agreed to attend the Athens IAQ conference, where he will continue his education on ETS and IAQ issues. Dr. Souchon cannot be expected at this time to give a presentation on IAQ issues to as large a group as will be present in Athens but nonetheless has expressed an interest in developing additional expertise in the field — which we must encourage. He currently is conducting a small study to assess indoor air quality in hospitals in Venezuela. He has not sought funding for this project.
