  1. Very cool…Love the pics!

  2. LaRonda,
    I think you did a great job on your presentation.

  3. Very professional! Nice job!

  4. Nice work! Great presentation!

  5. LaRonda,

    It looks great.

    I loved these for every eight smokers the tobacco industry kills, it takes one nonsmoker with them.
    Pregnant women who quit smoking as late as the 30th week of gestation can still positively affect their babies’ birth weight.

    You may have mentioned these things and I missed it.
    Two thoughts: Why intervene now? A primary reason that interventions are successful during pregnancy is that women will do for their children what they will not do for themselves.

    Why is SHS exposure in children important? Due to smaller lungs and higher increased respiratory rate secondhand smoke has a greater impact on children than adults.

    You really did a nice job.


  6. LaRonda, This could be used as a public service announcement. Pertinent information with amazing pictures.

  7. LaRonda, Keep sounding the alarm for our children, especially for the unborn. We live in an increasingly selfish society that doesn’t care about the well being of others, even their own flesh and blood. It is imperative that the information you have presented be kept in the public view on a regular basis.

  8. LaRonda,

    Thanks for sharing these alarming stats. It is an eye- opener and I believe it will play its part in being a catalyst for change in smokers who view it. I wish that all smokers could see this presentation; and for non-smokers, we can pass the message along to encourage others to change.
