Clean & Healthy Tribal Casinos Workshop

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), Region 5: “The Clean & Healthy Tribal Casinos Workshop,“ was held September 18 & 19, 2012, at the Grand Portage Lodge & Casino, Grand Portage, MN. You can read about what the experts and science had to say at Region 5’s first highly successful Tribal Casinos Workshop focusing on Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS), Traditional and Commercial tobacco.

This Workshop was lead by Region 5 Tribes in collaboration with U.S. EPA staff, “Connecting Culture to Policy Change in Indian Country”. What is the health impact, and can reducing ETS toxicity purify the air enough to be considered healthy? What are the pros and cons of “Smoke Free Casinos”?
