 PARENT'S SMOKING TAKES AN EMOTIONAL TOLL ON CHILDREN,
 A NEW HARRIS STUDY SUGGESTS; PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY
 NEW YORK, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Results of the largest study ever conducted on the impact of smoking on family life -- and the first to survey children on the topic -- suggest that smoking is taking a terrible emotional toll on millions of families, especially children.
 "The ProStep(TM) Report on Smoking & the Family," conducted by the prestigious research firm of Louis Harris and Associates, Inc., through an educational grant provided by Lederle Laboratories, was compiled from interviews with more than 3,800 people nationwide, including more than 2,600 school children. The survey is a prelude to the announcement by Lederle of a new national initiative to encourage adults to stop smoking and help ensure that children never start.
 Chief results of the survey will be presented at a news conference in New York tomorrow by a distinguished panel of experts on family issues and smoking.
 Panelists include: Lee Salk, Ph.D., professor of psychology, the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center; Michael C. Fiore, M.D., director, Tobacco Research & Intervention Program, University of Wisconsin; Patrick Reynolds, grandson of tobacco company founder R.J. Reynolds, and a quit-smoking advocate; Marily Rhudy, R.Ph., president of American Pharmaceutical Association; and William Scharringhausen, R.Ph., president of NARD.
 Representatives from prominent national health organizations and interest groups will be present.
 Appearing as a special guest will be acclaimed actress Lauren Bacall, who will discuss the impact smoking has had on her own family.
 The press conference will be held today, Tuesday, March 3, 9:30 a.m., at the Hotel Macklowe, 145 W. 44th St., New York, fourth floor. Private interview suites are available, and a buffet breakfast will be served at 9 a.m.
