Penn State Students Tackle Tobacco

Penn State Students Tackle Tobacco

A new student-created video on YouTube reminds smokers that quitting is in. The 4-minute video, Tackling Tobacco at Penn State, features interviews with Penn State students who share their honest opinions about the negative effects of smoking. The video was created by Health Policy and Administration students Tiana Lukas and Lisa Tubb as a class project for HealthWorks, an outreach program within University Health Services (UHS). Lukas and Tubb chose smoking as their topic because the college years are when lifetime habits are formed, so students need to realize how bad smoking is for them so they can ensure a healthy future.
