March Madness? Few schools in the NCAA tournament field scored smoke-free

Only 9 of the 68 teams selected for the 2016 NCAA men’s basketball tournament play for schools with smoke-free campus policies. Eight of the schools have been deemed 100 percent smoke-free by the American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation.

Regardless of which team cuts down the nets in Houston next month, nobody wins with smoking. So in addition to cheering for Cinderella and buzzer beaters, let’s hope more campus leaders are inspired to pursue smoke-free policies.
