Join Licking Memorial Hospital (LMH) Tobacco Cessation Counselors Nia Spivey, NCTTP, CTTS; Megan Walts, CTTS, CHES; and Bonnie Ghiloni, R.N., B.S.N., NCTTP, CTTS on Thursday, June 17, at 6:00 p.m., for a virtual presentation on how to quit tobacco use.
Quitting the use of tobacco is one of the best things you can do for your health. Tobacco products contain harmful chemicals that damage nearly every organ in the body. In fact, tobacco use has been identified as the leading cause of preventable death in the United States.
If you are trying to quit, or have tried in the past without success, you are not alone. Roughly 7 out of 10 smokers say they want to quit and many report repeated attempts to quit in the past. Quitting tobacco use is difficult, but there are successful strategies that can help support and maintain a tobacco-free life.
The event is free; however, registration is required in order to receive the link to view the presentation and receive the lung cancer screening form. To register, call Licking Memorial Public Relations at (220) 564-1560.
