Clearing the Air: An Institute for Policy Advocacy (IX) returns in 2014, to the Stanford Sierra Conference Center in South Lake Tahoe, CA. The purpose of the 3-day skills-building and strategy planning Institute is to enhance awareness of the dangers of secondhand smoke, share recent science and economic data and first-hand experiences, and expand the capacity of smokefree advocates, researchers, and other public health professionals nationwide.


Regarding the King Fire in Northern California:

While we do not anticipate that the King fire will have a negative impact on the Institute, the health and safety of our participants is our top priority.  Therefore, we encourage you to monitor the situation along with us.  The air quality in South Lake Tahoe, while experiencing occasional spikes, has remained at safe levels.   You can view the current (and past) air quality report for South Lake Tahoe here:  Air Quality Report for South Lake Tahoe
