This is a guest post from Human Resources:
Sept. 15 through Nov. 3, Wake Forest will sponsor tobacco cessation classes in partnership with the Forsyth County Department of Health and the American Lung Association. This free program will provide education, resources, and support for full- and part-time faculty and staff, as well as temporary employees. Faculty and staff may register for the hour-long classes, which will be held in Benson University Center 344 on Thursdays at 8 a.m.
Participants should consult their physicians prior to beginning the classes, and they may choose to combine the program with tobacco cessation medications. Wake Forest medical plan participants have access to FDA-approved prescription tobacco cessation drugs and over-the-counter Nicotine Replacement Therapy drugs (with a prescription). Generic drugs are covered without a copayment for two 90-day supplies.
