Helping Americans quit smoking remains a priority for the American Lung Association. Its Freedom From Smoking® group clinic program, which began in 1981 and includes a comprehensive variety of evidence-based cessation techniques, has helped hundreds of thousands of smokers quit. UConn Health Center, of Farmington, is offering the seven-week group clinic beginning Tuesday, September 17.
The seven-week program runs from 6:00-8:00 p.m. from Tuesday, September 17 through October 29. Meetings will be held in Conference Room LM050 in UConn Health Center, located at 263 Farmington Avenue, Farmington. The program will be facilitated by Terri Seelig, R.R.T., Department of Medicine, Pulmonary Division and a trained American Lung Association Freedom From Smoking® facilitator. The cost is just $50.
“More than 443,000 Americans die from smoking each year, and many more suffer from smoking-caused illnesses including lung disease,” said Jeff Seyler, President & CEO of the American Lung Association of the Northeast. “Our Freedom From Smoking program has helped so many be successful in their quit attempts. With the necessary resources and support, people can quit for good and live better, healthier lives.”
