‘Freedom from smoking’ classes scheduled

The Human Resources department will host a third round of the tobacco cessation program called “Freedom from Smoking” starting in March.

The program includes a six-week class and a $400 benefit toward specific tobacco cessation products, such as bupropion, Nicoderm CQ patch, Nicotrol patch, Nicorette gum and Commit lozenge.

The classes will be held on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Benson University Center, room 410, on the following days: March 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29, and April 5. Registration is required.

Each class is limited to 12 to 14 participants. All faculty and staff (full-time, part-time and temporary) can register for this program through the Professional Development Center. Spouses and same sex domestic partners are also welcome to sign up for the program.

Participants should consult with their physician prior to beginning the classes and to discuss medication therapy. Research shows that a tobacco cessation class combined with medication therapy increases success.

To register, please e-mail AskHR@nullwfu.edu or call extension 4700.
