FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ The University of Connecticut Health Center is preparing to become an entirely smoke-free campus in a few weeks.
Smoking has been prohibited since 1990 inside John Dempsey Hospital on the center’s Farmington campus. The new policy, which starts Nov. 18, will prohibit tobacco use of any kind anywhere on the property.
The center is offering a smoking cessation clinic for workers and several related events in November for workers and visitors.
The University of Connecticut Health Center includes the hospital, UConn’s medical and dental schools, and professional offices.
