Fort Wayne, Ind. – Monday, Sept. 13, 2010 — Parkview Hospital’s new tool to help educate the public about the dangers of tobacco use is on display for the remainder of the year at Science Central, 1950 N. Clinton St. in Fort Wayne.
The new anti-tobacco learning center, which was unveiled last month, is an interactive display that allows users to view and listen to a wide-range of facts and information from public education programs about the effects of tobacco.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Science Central on this effort to help educate the community about the dangers of tobacco use,” said Craig Traxler, director of cardiopulmonary services, Parkview Hospital. “Science Central is a great venue to host our display. We will be able to reach children and adults in an educational setting.”
A grant from Tobacco Free Allen County allowed for the creation of the learning center. The kiosk was invented and designed by CVC Communications in Fort Wayne.
