Tobacco-Free Campus Resources

These resources are designed to be helpful for all Maine hospitals to create, implement and maintain a 100% smoke and tobacco-free campus policy.  Smoke and tobacco-free policies are the most important step a hospital can take to protect visitors, patients and staff from the harmful effects of secondhand smoke and tobacco.

Additional Resources

  • Tobacco-Free Magazine Stickers- Placing stickers on magazines or including a small sign in waiting rooms is a great way to show your patients, visitors and community that you do not support tobacco advertising.  This message is especially important since we know that often these ads are targeting children and teens.  Contact us to request stickers.
