Mil Gracias for Not Smoking Indoors, San Antonio!

The new “Mil Gracias for Not Smoking Indoors!” campaign from UT Health San Antonio helps people share gratitude for smokers who respect others’ air by reducing exposure to secondhand smoke.

You can take 3 big actions:

1. Email a “thank you” message to smokers who protect others by not smoking indoors.

2. Sign a letter to acknowledge the dangers of secondhand smoke.

3. Download an Action Pack to promote smoke-free multifamily housing in your city.

The Mil Gracias campaign also features English and Spanish flyers with key messages to help people reduce their risk for smoking-related diseases and COVID-19.

Through #MilGraciasForNotSmoking, we can reduce exposure to secondhand smoke, reduce risk for related disease and severe COVID-19 cases, and reduce health care costs and hospitalizations!
