Are you worried about thirdhand smoke in your new home? Did you purchase a used car and then realize it smells like stale tobacco smoke? Does the smoke from your downstairs neighbor drift into your apartment day and night?
The Do-It-Yourself Project is designed for community residents who are concerned about thirdhand smoke in their home, car, or workplace. The Resource Center addresses resident’s concerns by designing individualized sampling kits and providing detailed instructions for do-it-yourself sample collection. Sampling kits, including instructions and postage-paid return shipping, are sent via USPS. Center staff provide telephone support for sample collection, if needed. Upon return of the samples to San Diego State, they are analyzed at laboratories at the School of Public Health, and a report of the results is provided to the resident.
Individuals and organizations are encouraged to contact us to learn more about participating in the Do-It-Yourself Project. There is no charge to participants who qualify. For more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
