FREE Quit Smoking Now Six-Week Group Program Begins

It’s never too late to quit.  Within 20 minutes of the last cigarette, the body goes through a series of positive changes to improve health that will continue for years to come.

A new Quit Smoking Now group will begin on Aug. 18.  The group meets for 90 minutes weekly from 6 – 7:30 p.m. for six weeks (group meeting dates: Aug. 18, 25, Sept. 1, 8, 15, 22).

Quit Smoking Now is facilitated by professionals from NSU’s Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) and Healthy Lifestyles Guided Self-Change programs, and is offered in group and individual settings. The program is designed to motivate and help smokers prepare to quit, select a quit date, and learn strategies to quit and stay tobacco-free.  

The Quit Smoking Now program is FREE for NSU employees, students, and immediate family members.  Participants will also receive a FREE six-week supply of non-prescription Nicotine Replacement Therapy (gum, patches) while supplies last.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 954-262-5860 or email gsc@nova.edu.  All information is confidential.
