The American Lung Association in South Dakota helps provide smokefree housing for people across the state. In collaboration with Health Connect of South Dakota, the Lung Association was part of a training for managers, owners and residents of multi-unit housing titled "A Breath of Fresh Air: Smokefree Housing Workshop." The training welcomed dozens of participants from the Sioux Falls area. They were provided information on the health impacts of tobacco, including secondhand and thirdhand smoke, legal issues related to adopting a smokefree policy, and cessation support. This annual workshop is held to support adoption and implementation of smokefree policies.
