Yale is going tobacco-free and for the past year has embarked on a campaign to support the health of our campus community. This video of Bob Corso, Yale security officer, and others feature members of the Yale community who have quit smoking. They have chosen to tell their compelling stories in the hope of inspiring others to get healthy.


Tobacco-Free Yale takes a holistic approach to supporting Yale students, faculty and staff by offering various programs and resources geared towards helping you and your loved ones quit tobacco use.

For faculty, staff and their dependents the Tobacco-Free Yale Assistance Program offers:

  • one-on-one telephonic coaching that is personalized for you
  • education and planning materials to help you stay tobacco free
  • options such as free Nicotine Replacement Therapy medications to consider with support from your Health Coach and pharmacist

Coaching is conducted through scheduled telephone appointments which range from 15 to 30 minutes based on your need, and the program is available to you and your covered dependents. To learn more about the Tobacco-Free Yale Assistance Program, please call 866-237-1198.
