By Thirdhand Smoke Resource Center
This past spring, fearless tobacco control advocate Esther Schiller passed away. Esther served on the Thirdhand Smoke Policy Advisory for over three years, helping to guide and shape the work we do here at the Thirdhand Smoke Resource Center. In addition, she made numerous contributions to smokefree housing initiatives, particularly in the LA area. She co-founded Smokefree Air for Everyone (SAFE) to bring awareness, educate, and influence policy for the protection from the harms of tobacco smoke in the indoor environment. Esther Schiller will be dearly missed by us at the Thirdhand Smoke Resource Center and in the tobacco control community.
