Clevelanders urged to join support for smoke-free public buildings, workplaces


CLEVELAND: Support Clean Indoor Air in Cleveland, “It’s a Human Right” is the message the Cleveland Clean Indoor Air Partnership is using to demonstrate the need for community support around creating a smoke-free environment that will protect the health of service industry workers by removing the exposure to secondhand smoke in their workplaces. 


Dr. Sherrie Dixon Williams was the keynote speaker last week at the Partnership’s kickoff event.  Dr. Williams is an Assistant Professor at Case Western Reserve University and currently serves as Medical Director of Pulmonary Rehabilitation at MetroHealth Medical Center.  Dr. Williams received a B.A. and a M.H.S. from the John Hopkins University, a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Illinois in Chicago and completed her residency at Wayne State University.   She has been awarded grants from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, the Metro Health Foundation, the Ohio Hospital Association Foundation for Healthy Communities, and the Eli Lilly & Company in reference to Adult Smoking Cessation. 


The Cleveland Clean Indoor Air Partnership public awareness and education campaign focuses on making Cleveland smoke free for all people who work and play in the City of Cleveland.   The Partnership’s mission is to educate the community on the harmful effects of secondhand smoke, gather community input, suggestions and ideas, and then to develop a public policy proposal for a clean-indoor-air ordinance for all public buildings and workplaces that will work for Cleveland. 


Columbus and Toledo have passed laws restricting public smoking.
