NOM-NOM-NOM (Smoke-Free University Supporters Team, Ministry of Health and Welfare) consists of six Yonsei Univ. student members. Nom-Nom-Nom hosts various events, including “Mobile Smoke-free Campaign” with the Seodaemun-gu Public Health Center held every Thursday in front of the Student Union. The campaign includes CO rate check-ups, which measures how much Carbon Monoxide is accumulated in your body. “Carbon Monoxide rating by public health doctors builds up ‘professional authority’, which helps persuade people against smoking,” says Seok Jo-un (07, University College, Nursing).
Nom-Nom-Nom states in its promotion blog that the main reason for them to start this event was because the team members wanted to keep non-smokers free from the smoking environment. ““This Carbon Monoxide actually targets non-smokers more, in alarming them of second-hand smoking,” stresses Seok. “It is actually the non-smokers who urge their husbands, their fathers, and their friends quit. I would like to urge people to not condone the smoking environment, and take one more step to keep the non-smokers’ rights to make the whole campus non-smoking area,” he also explained, asking non-smokers to act.
