LLCHD Helps UNL Implement Tobacco-Free Campus Policy.xml391
  
Lancaster Youth Prevention Secondhand Smoke Exposure CessationApproved
For several years, attempts by student groups and community tobacco prevention partners to initiate a discussion regarding a tobacco-free campus policy were met with administration resistance.  In 2016, two administrative staff and a student government officer from UNL attended a Tobacco-Free Campus Policy Summit sponsored by Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) to seek out information and guidance.  In turn they took the information back to UNL and formed a Tobacco-Free Campus Policy Task Force and began to work toward implementing a tobacco-free campus policy.

Employer's Tobacco-Free Policy Helps Panhandle Smoker Quit for Good.xml387
  
Panhandle Secondhand Smoke Exposure CessationApproved
Marti had been a smoker on and off for 25 years and wanted to quit, so when she first came to work at Chadron Community Hospital, she was excited to learn that the organization had a tobacco-free policy in place. Her previous employer allowed smoking and smoke breaks, so quitting was more difficult. Marti thought, “I’m going to use this policy to my advantage to quit for good.” She left her cigarettes at home, and over time she was able to completely stop smoking by gradually cutting down on the number of cigarettes outside of the workday. She has had a slip-up or two along the way, but she knows that quitting takes practice, and she is determined to be a non-smoker for life.

Tobacco-Free Parks Toolkit Provides Resources, Assists With Policy.xml370
  
Cass Disparate Populations Secondhand Smoke Exposure Youth PreventionApproved
Due to a lack of local tobacco-free parks policies, tobacco use was commonplace in the three parks, exposing patrons to secondhand cigarette smoke containing over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing carcinogens and 400 other toxins. Cigarette butts littered the park grounds and required volunteer time each month to clean the parks. Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.) had been working on promoting tobacco-free parks policies in these areas, but used NTDP Toolkit resources to enhance this effort.

Agencies Partner to Ensure Consistent Education About Secondhand Smoke.xml361
  
Panhandle Cessation Secondhand Smoke ExposureApproved
There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke.  Secondhand smoke causes numerous health problems in infants and children, including more frequent and severe asthma attacks, respiratory infections, ear infections, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).  Low income and minorities have higher smoking rates.  Of the 309 families served by HFA, 81% have an income of $20,000 or less and half are minority.  The Panhandle Prevention Coalition partnered with HFA to promote smoke-free homes and cars.  We found that it was not being promoted consistently and that all clients were not receiving the same education.
