GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The UF Tobacco-Free Task force says that Gators don’t chew, they chomp – and they have done so for the past five years.

To commemorate another year of Tobacco Free Florida, tables with tobacco education and tips on quitting, carbon monoxide monitoring and prizes will be across campus Tuesday.

Students and employees are encouraged to wear blue shirts and join in the celebration. To win one of the various prizes, participants must sport their blue, visit www.tobaccofree.ufl.edu and take note of the last word in the last video, and be one of the first 50 people to stop by a table at 9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. These tables can be found at Gator Corner Dining Facility, UF & Shands Atrium and the Plaza of the Americas.

Student groups will also be traveling and sharing knowledge on the free cessation services available to those who want to quit, as well as handing out reminders that UF is tobacco-free everywhere.
