State business and health groups team up for forums to answer the question: Do smoking bans help the bottom line?

Some of Kentucky’s leading health and business organizations will host a series of smoke-free forums throughout the state throughout the fall. A joint effort of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Public Health Association, Foundation for the Healthy Kentucky and Smoke-Free Kentucky, the forums are designed to show individuals how they can protect themselves and others from secondhand smoke, improve Kentucky’s business image and lower health care costs related to tobacco use.
