Episode 4: Helping colleges quit tobacco – University of San Francisco

Sep 24 2019

At Healthy Communities News, we spotlight the people and places that are tackling local health challenges in impactful ways. The University of San Francisco USF is one of over 200 colleges and universities adopting policies to eliminate tobacco from their campuses as part of the CVS Health Foundation Tobacco-Free Campus Initiative. It’s a part of the $50 million commitment to help deliver the first tobacco-free generation launched by CVS Health soon after it quit selling tobacco products five years ago. We visited USF to see what a tobacco-free campus looks like and sat down with students, staff and our partner at the American Cancer Society for their thoughts on going 100 percent smoke- and tobacco-free.
