The Tobacco-Free Living and Young Adults (TFLYA)

Excerpt Taken from MacLean, Diem, Bouchard, Robertson-Palmer, Edwards, & O’Hagan, (2007).

The Tobacco-Free Living and Young Adults project was a program intervention to promote tobacco-free living among young adults, aged 18-25 years old, in university residences. The project evolved out of concerns raised within the City of Ottawa’s Public Health Unit about the high smoking rates among young adults (National Population Health Survey, Health Canada, 1999) and from the fact that little was known at the time about smoking behaviour and effective intervention approaches for this age group (MacLean, Meyer, Robertson-Palmer, Diem, Carroll, Moses, and Zimmerman, 1999).  It was initiated by the Health Unit working in partnership with the Community Health Research Unit, and later, the University of Ottawa Residence Life and Health Promotion departments. The Community Health Research Unit is a health system-linked research unit, with investigators from both the Health Unit and the University of Ottawa. This collaborative partnership has been operating since 1989.
