St. Francis quit smoking program starts May 14

GRAND ISLAND – Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable death and disease in the United States. It kills more than 480,000 Americans each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

For those interested in quitting, CHI Health St. Francis is offering a “Freedom from Smoking” tobacco cessation class with the first session taking place from 5-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14, in Conference Room 4 at St. Francis, 2620 W. Faidley Ave.

For more than 25 years, this leading American Lung Association tobacco cessation program shows participants how to quit tobacco – for good – in a small and supportive group setting.

The seven-week, eight-session program is led by the hospital’s certified instructors Jenny Roush, BSE, Cancer Treatment Center, and Seann Julian, RRT, Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation Services. It will cover topics like knowing if you’re ready to quit smoking, lifestyle changes, coping strategies and stress management. Also included is a participant handbook, relaxation DVD and preparing for quit day tools.

The cost of the program is $25. Participants are asked to register by Monday, May 13 by calling (308) 398-8912.
