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.
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!
Share with decision-makers about the many harms of secondhand smoke, which has killed millions, contains over 7,000 chemicals, and is linked to cancer, heart disease, asthma, and respiratory infections in children and adults.
