We shared the sense of excitement back in April when Birmingham City Council passed the smokefree ordinance that goes into effect this week. Now we have a chance to celebrate again on May 30 in Railroad Park. The Healthy Lungs Healthy Lifestyles Expo starts at 4 p.m. and lasts until 8 p.m., complete with snacks, booths and yoga.
Our thanks go to so many people who worked to make this ordinance a reality. Today’s celebration is organized by Smokefree Birmingham, representing the Health Action Partnership and federal funding as part of Communities Putting Prevention to Work.
Thanks also to Birmingham City Council for the chance to join Fultondale, Midfield, Fairfield, Clay and a growing list of Alabama cities in taking stand against secondhand smoke. We are glad to be a longtime part of the Health Action Partnership and this important effort to help people lead healthy lives.
