No-smoking policies in public places protect everyone from the dangers of secondhand smoke. Infants and children are particularly vulnerable to secondhand smoke's harmful effects because they are not able to walk away from people who may be smoking nearby.
Local Hospitals go Smoke-free Thank to our two local hospitals, Forsyth Medical Center (part of Novant Health) and Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center for switching to a 100% tobacco-free campus. The new policies protect patients, visitors, and those who work at the hospitals from secondhand smoke.
Schools to Become 100% Tobacco-free Locally and State-wide Thank you to the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Board of Education for passing a tobacco-free policy in June. Just days after our school board passed this policy, a new state law requiring all NC school districts to become 100% tobacco-free passed. The new policy will take effect in July of 2008. For more information on tobacco-free schools, click here. Thanks for making our children's health a priority!
