Initial Award Abstract
The purpose of the Clearing the Air Institute is to expand the capacity of researchers, public health professionals, and advocates, to reduce secondhand smoke exposure; additionally, the Institute provides an opportunity for these changemakers to network, develop consensus, and mobilize movement towards effective smokefree policies. Trainers and ANR Foundation staff will identify, cultivate, train, inspire, and connect the individuals so that participants can return to their respective communities better equipped to reduce secondhand smoke exposure. We believe the Institute's activities and sessions are a core element in maintaining and expanding the movement and fostering a grassroots network across the country, and arming this network with the most current tobacco-related research. This unique opportunity gives participants on-the-ground practical examples and resources to succeed in tobacco control and ultimately, to reduce the number of people in the U.S. with cancer and heart disease as a result of secondhand smoke exposure.
