How to Go Smokefree: A Countdown for Nebraska Public Housing Authorities

Smokefree Air , Webinar

Smoke-free air policies in Public Housing Authorities improve the health of residents.

Studies show the air quality of your building will improve with smoke-free policies. The secondhand smoke from just a few smokers can permeate the air of an entire residential building. Smoke-free air reduces heart attack rates, decreases severe asthma attacks in children and residents from respiratory illness and even cancer. Smoke-free air policies also increases smoking cessation in the community. This decreases the instances of tobacco-related illnesses including cancer, stroke and heart disease.

This webinar shows the timeline HUD has laid out for Public Housing Authorities to go smoke-free, as well as ideas for preparing to go smokefree under the HUD tobacco rule.
