Our Tobacco (Leave the Pack Behind) Team cares about everyone’s health and environment when it comes to smoking. This dynamic team of students adopts a peer to peer education method to talk to students and staff on campus about social smoking, alternative tobacco products, smoking cessation, physiological effects of smoking and much more.
