Great American Smoke Out 2009

Healthy Start joined the Sarasota County Tobacco-Free Committee and the American Lung Association  in celebrating the Great American Smoke Out 2009. The event was held to celebrate Sarasota County’s new policy to limit smoking to restricted areas on Sarasota’s beaches. We helped raise awareness about the lifetime effects of Tobacco use, particularly the effect of second-hand smoke on newborns and infants, and distributed resource packets for quitting support. We also gave out free frisbees encouraging people to “Throw out your cigarettes, and throw a frisbee instead!”
