USF Health Smoke-Free

USF Health Smoke-Free

From Rocky the Bull stomping out a giant cigarette to high school students finding out what they might look like twenty years from now if they smoked, USF Health rolled out all the stops at a recent event formally banning smoking on its part of the Tampa campus. This week’s University Beat on WUSF-TV has more on the decision and how it came about.
