October 9, 2013 – California’s Clear Air Project (CCAP), a project managed by ETR, recently awarded its 2013 Public Health Leadership Award. The award was given to the Redding Rancheria Tribal Government in recognition for the Tribe’s commitment to public health and for outstanding leadership in creating and enforcing a smoke-free health clinic facility.
In presenting the award, ETR’s Narinder Dhaliwal, CCAP Project Director, said, “Redding Rancheria stands out as a business and community leader because they offer patients and employees a completely smoke-free health center, including the grounds.
