Medical hospitals are places of healing. Yet, many choose not to address the use of tobacco by staff and patients. The
University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center (UMMMC), where the ATTOC team is based, has chosen to be proactive in helping both patients and staff break this deadly addiciton. The Center is 100 percent tobacco free, both indoors and outdoors, including parking garages and in vehicles parked there. It also offers support to patients in their recovery.
