WILLARD — Nationally recognized anti-tobacco advocate Patrick Reynolds will visit Huron County in February to warn seventh-grade students of the dangers of tobacco use, thanks to the collaborative efforts of three area hospitals.
Fisher-Titus Medical Center, Mercy Willard Hospital Foundation and The Bellevue Hospital will sponsor Reynolds’ presentations on Feb. 11 to12 at local schools. His advocacy work, motivational talks to youth and appearances in the national press have made him a well-known and respected champion of a tobacco-free society. He has helped remind millions of people about the dangers of tobacco use, and will impact about 2,000 students in Huron County.
Patrick watched his father, R.J. Reynolds, Jr., his oldest brother R.J. Reynolds III, and other members of his family die from cigarette-induced emphysema and lung cancer.
