He stated that as WHO Turkey Office, they will carry out the necessary studies in cooperation with the PAU Administration.
In his presentation, Specialist Dr. Nureddin Özdener drew attention to the fact that they are against tobacco products and this industry, which cause serious harm to human life, not those who use tobacco products. Specialist Dr. Nureddin Özdener said that they do not want an increase in the number of students using tobacco products at universities. He expressed his satisfaction that PAU, which has the slogan "University is the Guide of Life", is leading the society in this matter as well.
