NEWS: Communities encouraged to protect ‘Young Lungs at Play’

The Young Lungs at Play (YLAP) initiative is supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Health through a Centers for Disease Control Grant in partnership with Penn State Extension.  Throughout Berks County, the Council administers this program.

YLAP invites municipalities, school districts, youth sports organizations and other groups to join eliminate children’s exposure to secondhand smoke.  Adopting 100 % tobacco free laws, ordinances, policies or resolutions in public areas where children play helps to accomplish this.  This initiative will protect the environment and protect the health of all.
