Woman honored for efforts to keep youths from smoking

November 23, 1994

Ellicott City resident Peggy Browning was recently honored by the American Lung Association of Maryland with its Distinguished Service Award for Smoking and Health.

The award was presented by Dr. Lewis Rubin, president of the board of directors, at the association's recent annual meeting.

Ms. Browning, who lost her voice box and left lung to cancer after smoking for 38 years, has spent the past six years visiting at least two schools a week speaking to students about the dangers of smoking.

She also has testified before the state legislature and appeared on numerous television programs advocating smoking-prevention measures.
