Pennsylvania Tobacco Control Strategic Plan

Young Lungs At Play

Young Lungs at Play was designed to avoid children's exposure to secondhand smoke. This program is aimed to help communities create tobacco-free parks, playgrounds, and recreational areas where children play. Some communities in Pennsylvania have even adopted Young Lungs at Play policies at zoos, athletic fields, trails, and along streets and sidewalks.

In the NorthCentral Health District, our regional coalition (North Central Tobacco Control Coalition) continues its efforts to expand the number of communities that adopt Young Lung at Play policies. If you are interested in working with the North Central Tobacco Control Coalition, please contact Leslie Hosterman at for additional contact information.

For more information on this program please review the attached documents.
