Tobacco Free Campus

If you’ve heard of second-hand smoke, then you might know how dangerous it is to your health. What you may not realize, though, is that smoking and second-hand smoke are the single-most common cause of preventable disease. If you or someone you know has been affected by cancer, then you know how difficult it can be for the entire family to cope with the sudden changes.

Our facilities are smoke-free and tobacco-free, inside and outside, because your comfort and health are what we care about the most.

No one should be exposed to something that could lead to conditions like:

  • Heart disease
  • Emphysema
  • Lung cancer
