UMTRN: The University of Michigan Tobacco Research Network: Center for the Assessment of Tobacco Regulations (CAsToR)

UMTRN: Smoke-Free Environments Law Project (SFELP)

The Smoke-Free Environments Law Project (SFELP) provides information, consultation and advice for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, local units of government, tobacco control advocates, and communities regarding evidence-based policies and practices to protect Michigan residents from the harmful effects of tobacco. SFELP has operated for over 20 years with the support of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Service’s Tobacco Section. In that time, the project has addressed a number of issues, ranging from local smoke-free public health regulations and Michigan’s statewide smoke-free law to smoke-free public housing policies, smoke-free policies for parks and beaches, youth e-cigarette use, tobacco use in vulnerable and marginalized communities, and raising the minimum age of sale of tobacco products to 21.
