On Friday, September 15, 2017, the Fulton County Health Department's Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) Program and the Georgia State University School of Public Health hosted an event to celebrate the Proud To Be Smoke Free Fulton Campaign’s success in increasing the number of tobacco- and smoke-free environments in Fulton County and to discuss strategies for sustaining the momentum the Campaign has built. The event featured speeches from many active supporters of smoke-free environments, interactive discussions and break-out sessions. Partners whose efforts have served to advance the tobacco-free movement in Fulton County were also recognized. With the picturesque backdrop of the spectacular Atlanta Botanical Garden, public health leaders and community activists rolled up sleeves to brainstorm ideas and strategies to sustain the momentum already achieved by PICH- and partner-driven outreach efforts. Guests included representatives from the American Cancer Society, Georgia Department of Public Health, Urban League of Greater Atlanta, Smoke Free Atlanta and representatives from a few of the smoke-free local bars, restaurants and apartment complexes that have been assisted by PICH in transitioning to havens of clean, breathable air in the city #PTBSFF.
