New research shows that environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) continues to pose measurable health hazards to children.
Hennepin County Strong Beginnings Child Care offers new series of workshops to educate parents about how to reduce the harms of ETS exposure for infants and young children.
Hennepin County Strong Beginnings Centers serve approximately 750 children in predominantly urban areas of North and South Minneapolis. Sixty-five percent are low-income and support high-quality early care to promote early childhood development and school readiness. Their mission is to work with parents to improve development of the children they service and to promote school readiness (http://www.co.hennepin.mn.us/).
