Jefferson No Smoking

"The members gained information about maintaining their health ... [and] began to see coherence in establishing healthy on-going practices ... Our members and staff shared freely with the BTG students and felt they were contributing to the education of professionals who wanted to be more understanding."

"Interdisciplinary work was . . . a great idea because we all now have some level of understanding and appreciation for one another in our respective fields. The greatest health care cannot come from any one profession, it takes a team. BTG truly prepared us for that."
