UCLA Smoke-Free Champions

goodbye smoke | UCLA Smoke Free Environment

As part of the UCLA Smoke-Free Initiative, these UC healthcare professionals have pledged to serve as advocates to assist patients, families and staff with the transition to a smoke-free environment. In addition, they are available to answer questions related to smoking cessation.

UCLA Smoke-Free Champions are available for the following services:

1.   Provide live training to UCLA faculty and staff about evidence-based treatments for smoking cessation and tips on how to maintain a smoke-free environment.

2.   Provide educational resources, materials and referrals to any interested persons seeking information about smoking cessation.

3.   Serve as an advocate to speak with patients and their families regarding the UCLA smoke-free policy and smoking cessation programs. 

4.   Communicate patient, visitor, staff and faculty feedback regarding the UCLA Smoke Free Policy back to senior UC health administration.

5.   Update the UCLA Smoke Free Policy to ensure that it is updated and impactful to the UC Health System.
