Approximately 1,500 college campuses are smoke-free, and UVM should join them, said Dr. Jan Carney, cochair of the UVM Tobacco-Free Steering Committee, which is pushing for the ban.
She ticks off her reasons: There is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke, according to the U.S. surgeon general; cigarette butts are an environmental problem; and the ban, she believes, will help reduce smoking rates.
Studies since 2000 indicate such restrictions can help make nonsmoking the social norm, said Carney, associate dean for public health at UVM College of Medicine and a former Vermont health commissioner.
As a result, some people quit and others never start, Carney
Roughly a quarter of student smokers at UVM start when they come to the school, according to a survey cited by Carney

Vermont Livable Wage Campaign - Home
There Dr. Jan Carney, associate dean of public health at the University of Vermont, presented a UVM College of Medicine Study on the effects of Paid Sick Days on Children's Health.
Dr. Carney said that current guidelines recommend that people stay home if they think they have the flu.
She added that it would be easier to do so if people had paid sick leave.
Rep. Paul Poirier, I-Barre co-sponsor of H.382 , also spoke at the event, saying that the H1N1 virus will affect children and the elderly more than other populations, and he
is worried that a family could slip into economic despair if a person needs to take time off and care for someone suffering with the flu or another bad illness.
