Meeting Minutes – March 19, 2004

We made recommendations to related to the upcoming change in La Salle University’s smoking policy. These include setting up ‘alternative smoking areas’ to be designated at least 20 –30 feet from doorways to avoid individuals having to walk through second hand smoke when entering buildings. In addition, we recommend that two sets of signs go up – 1/ to give the La Salle University community advanced notice that buildings will be going smoke free as of the date this will be happening 2/ proclaiming the area smoke-free once the building goes smoke free. We also discussed the appropriateness of some of the over the counter drugs being sold in the bookstore (i.e. no-dose, vivarin). The health risks of these drugs will be investigated and brought back to the committee to make recommendations. Health Fair plans were confirmed as was the upcoming Spring Blood drive.
