Pacific Northwest Colleges Invited to Take a 1Day Stand Against Tobacco

The Fresh Air Campus Challenge is encouraging all college campuses in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington to take a 1Day Stand against tobacco by implementing a tobacco-free policy for one day.

The Fresh Air Campus Challenge is encouraging all college campuses in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington to take a 1Day Stand against tobacco by implementing a tobacco-free policy for one day.

On November 21, 2013, colleges throughout the Pacific Northwest are encouraged to take a 1Day Stand against tobacco by implementing a tobacco-free policy for a day. Held in conjunction with the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout, the event encourages students to kick the habit for a day and raise awareness of the role tobacco-free campuses can play in protecting and promoting better health for the entire community.

The 1Day Stand is sponsored by the Fresh Air Campus Challenge, a region-wide campaign administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services aimed at getting all colleges and universities in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington to go smoke- or tobacco-free by 2016.
