SmokingWords kicks off its "Fresh Start LSU 2012" campaign

SmokingWords is "kicking butts and taking names" this year. The educational movement has been active on campus raising awareness about the harmful effects of tobacco and how LSU students, faculty and staff can get involved in making LSU a tobacco-free campus. 

At the "fresh start" of the campaign, SmokingWords representatives attended the 5th Annual Young Adult Summit on Tobacco at Dillard University. This event gave SmokingWords the opportunity to meet individuals and organizations from other universities that are involved in tobacco-free initiatives.

In addition, SmokingWords participated in the 29th Annual LSU Health & Wellness Fair. The fair was a great success, and SmokingWords was able to reach out to the campus community with information about the dangers of tobacco, cessation programs and the overall movement to make LSU a tobacco-free campus. Antendees had the opportunity to sign a petition advocating for the movement, as well as learn about upcoming opportunities to get involved with SmokingWords.
