In a California Healthline Special Report by Rachel Dornhelm, experts discussed the University of California’s efforts to institute a smoking ban at all 10 UC campuses.

To prepare for the ban, each campus is forming working groups to develop smoke-free policies for their schools.

The Special Report includes comments from:

  • Irene Cheng, a fourth-year biology student at UC-Berkeley;
  • Kevin Confetti, director of workers’ compensation at UC;
  • Stefano, a scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory who asked that only his first name be used;
  • Colleen Stevens, chief of the tobacco control branch at the California Department of Public Health; and
  • Kim Homer Vagadori, project director of the California Youth Advocacy Network (Dornhelm, California Healthline, 8/15).

The complete transcript of this Special Report is available as a PDF.
