March 26 – 1 Day Challenge Tobacco-Free PSU

March 5th, 2015 by Denise

In New Hampshire tobacco use continues to be the leading cause of preventable death with 1,900 lives lost each year.  Resulting in $729 Million dollars spent on smoking–related health care costs annually. Colleges and universities across the state are committed in their continued work to prevent college youth from using tobacco products, eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke, and helping those already addicted to the nicotine in tobacco products to quit, and stay quit. USNH Tobacco-Free Campus Initiative.

On Thursday, March 26, 2015 Plymouth State University will participate in a 1-Day Challenge Tobacco-Free PSU! Event Flyer

This event will engage students, faculty and staff in ways that promote healthy behaviors that include nutrition, physical activity and stress reduction while providing tobacco education and cessation resources.

We would like to gain a better understanding of how the campus views tobacco use and secondhand smoke: Take the PSU Tobacco Survey by Midnight on March 13th!
