Media Campaigns

NYC Smoke-Free at Public Health Solutions, in partnership with the NYS Tobacco Control Program, applies hard-hitting media campaigns to shift the social norms regarding tobacco use. We have utilized various forms of media to educate and advocate for the reduction in tobacco retail and tobacco marketing, the expansion of smoke-free outdoor spaces, the availability of smoke-free housing, and the end of tobacco sales in pharmacies.  Our ads have appeard on telephone kiosks, bus shelters, ferries and a myriad of print media throughout New York City. Over the past several years, we have launched a number of successful media campaigns to support our tobacco control and smoke-free policy initiatives.
