This month’s topic is “Increasing Smoke-free Protection for Multi-unit Housing Residents in Gravois Park, St. Louis,” by Nicole Sinderman with Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and Hallie Moore with the American Lung Association.
DHSS’s Tobacco Prevention and Control Program’s goals are to prevent initiation of tobacco use among young people, promote quitting, eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke, and identify and eliminate tobacco-related health disparities. Less than 30% of Missourians are protected by comprehensive smoke-free policies in all public places and workplaces, including restaurants and bars. There are no city or state policies in Missouri requiring smoke-free protection at multi-unit housing properties, leaving many residents exposed to secondhand smoke in their own home. In this presentation, we’ll learn how the Tobacco Prevention and Control Program is partnering with the American Lung Association in Missouri through the Building Communities for Better Health Program to increase smoke-free protection for multi-unit housing residents in Gravois Park, St. Louis.
One CEU contact hour certificate is available for $5.00.
