We're clearing the air at campuses nationwide.
The American Cancer Society and the CVS Health Foundation are awarding grants to 20 U.S. colleges and universities as part of our Tobacco-Free Generation Campus Initiative (TFGCI). Over the next three years, the $3.6 million multi-year program will award grants to 125 colleges and universities across the country to accelerate and expand the number of campuses that adopt and implement 100 percent smoke- and tobacco-free campus policies.
The time is right to take action.
Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States. Of the nation's roughly 20 million college and university students, more than 1 million have been projected to die prematurely from cigarette smoking.
