Cherokee Nation for their new tobacco-free campus policies for all tribal government facilities.
Osage Nation, also for their tobacco-free tribal property policy.
Dell, Inc. for becoming one of Oklahoma's largest employers to implement a strong tobacco-free workplace policy.
Francis Tuttle Career Technology Center for implementing a 24/7 tobacco-free campus policy.
The highlight of the day was our keynote presentation from Cynthia Hallett, Executive Director of Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights.
For those of you who had the chance to hear her, you know what an exciting and motivating speaker she is. I have video of her presentation and am hoping to get it posted online for those of you who couldn't be there in person (for some reason, YouTube is balking at a 900 MB file :) ). But, Ms. Hallett was kind enough to share her slide show, "Putting Oklahoma on the Map," with us and I have included her presentation below.Putting OK on the Map
Again, a big thank you to all of you who were able to attend our annual meeting and to all of you who are helping lead the fight against tobacco in your communities. 2009 promises to be an exciting year for all of us, and I look forward to working with you.
