WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Exponent) - Most people know cigarettes are dangerous, but common misconceptions about smoking might be hurting students more than they realize.
Purdue students partnered with university organizations on Thursday to recognize the 37th annual Great American Smokeout, hosting it at the Córdova Recreational Center. The event was the product of roughly two months of collaboration and preparation by the Academy of Student Pharmacists, Colleges Against Cancer, the Tobacco Free
Partnership of Tippecanoe County and the Student Wellness Office.
The Great American Smokeout is a national event promoted by the American Cancer Society, with the goal of informing the public about the risks of smoking tobacco products, as well as offering counsel and potential avenues for smokers who want to kick the habit.
