At the federal level, we are working to enable Veterans Affairs Medical Centers to be 100% tobacco free campus wide by repealing a federal law requiring them to have smoking facilities on their campuses.
The VA medical centers would join all other North Carolina hospitals in becoming tobacco free, and North Carolina would become the first state to have all of its hospitals 100% tobacco free campus wide.
