Campus Story | Summer-Fall 2018
The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler is working with the UT Center for Health Communication to develop new Tobacco-Free signage across the campus. In 2004, UT Health Science Center at Tyler was the first hospital in the region to become a tobacco-free campus. Since then the policy has been adapted to include prohibiting the use of electronic nicotine delivery systems, but the signs had not been updated. After the third annual Eliminate Tobacco Use Summit, the tobacco task force voted to revamp the campus signage. The signs are expected to be posted in time for the opening of the new School of Community and Rural Health building currently under construction.
