The Great American Smokout… A Time to Reflect on our Tobacco Free Journey

November 18, 2019

The Great American Smokeout® held the third Thursday of November each year is an opportunity to celebrate our colleagues who have quit smoking and extend a hand to those who haven’t started their journey.  We know that quitting smoking isn’t easy.  It takes a plan, time and support. 

Founded on education and outreach, the Tobacco Free Yale initiative sparked a journey for Yale to become a smoke and tobacco free campus and foster a culture to support efforts to quit.

We share this update with highlights of our efforts:

In addition, we’ve worked with our own tobacco researchers and experts to update our policy which lists the prohibited substances and devices that are detrimental to health.  Thank you for supporting this on-going effort to create a healthier environment for us all.
