Inside the Program

Student Group helps improve public health through Tobacco Free campus initiative

Public Health Sciences students helped start and implement the Tobacco Free Campus Ambassador program to support the WSU Tobacco Free campus policy. The push to go tobacco free has been led by Public Health Sciences going back to 2005 when a group of students formed the Health, Education, Advocates for Leadership, Teamwork and Humanity (HEALTH) Student Association.

Students also celebrate National Public Health Week annually by volunteering in the community and displaying health educational materials around campus.
