U OF M MEDICAL STUDENTS LEAD AERIAL PHOTO SHOOT TO PROMOTE SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENT
Ann Arbor, MI-On Monday, October 29th at 3:30 pm, The University of Michigan chapter of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) will join students in public health, pharmacy, law, and other graduate and undergraduate programs to support a smoking ban in restaurants and bars throughout the state of Michigan. To this end, students clad in red shirts and white coats will gather on Ingalls Mall for an aerial photo shoot, forming the iconic "No Smoking" sign out of human bodies.
Following this event, the University of Michigan AMSA will continue its efforts to support House Bill 4163 and Senate Bill 109 currently within the Michigan State Legislature aimed at banning smoking in restaurants and bars. "A smoking ban just makes sense-we don't allow restaurants or bars laden with bacteria and cockroaches to serve food and drinks. How can we justify exposing customers and employees to the effects of second hand smoke? This is not a question of personal freedoms; secondhand smoke is the third leading cause of preventable death in the U.S.," said Adam Castaño, Co-President of the University of Michigan Chapter of AMSA.
