University to sponsor tobacco cessation classes

This is a guest post from Human Resources:

Jan. 9 through Feb. 27, 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-time, part-time, and temporary faculty and staff. To participate, faculty and staff should register for the eight-week program, which will be held in Reynolda Hall, Room 301, on Tuesdays from noon to 1 p.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.

If you are not currently enrolled in a medical plan, you may receive a tobacco cessation product benefit up to $150, based on submitted receipts.
