Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County and the Wright State University School of Professional Psychology have worked together to create a short, 10-question survey to gauge community interest around tobacco- free parks and recreation centers. Many communities across the nation have chosen to have their parks become tobacco- free for the following reasons:
- Parks and recreation facilities are established to promote healthy activities, community wellness; and tobacco- free policies complement this goal.
- Tobacco-free policies help to change community norms so that tobacco use is not an acceptable behavior for young people or adults.
- The new Surgeon General’s report emphasized that secondhand smoke is a human carcinogen for which there is no safe level of exposure.
This survey is for Montgomery County residents only. The direct link to the survey is:
It can also be accessed through the PHDMC website, http://www.phdmc.org/getup and then clicking on the survey banner at the top of the page.
We encourage employees, friends and family to complete the survey by April 21st.
