Exposure to Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) is related to increased health risks according to a recent report by the Surgeon General. Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States. UTEP has a focus on promoting health and wellness among our community. For all those who want to quit, there are resources available.
