Smoking cessation program available to UM-Dearborn faculty and staff

Submitted by on January 18, 2011 – 7:11 amNo Comment

As part of U-M’s July 2011 Smoke-Free Initiative, the smoke-free planning committee is offering a series of smoking cessation classes to help ease the transition of not being able to smoke on campus.

The classes will be offered through the Smoking Cessation Program provided by the Tobacco Consultation Services (TCS) of U-M’s MHealthy Initiative.

The program is a seven-week smoking cessation support group that is led by trained professionals who will provide tips, techniques and coping mechanisms for people who would like to quit smoking. The group will meet weekly for 1.5 hours on the Dearborn campus. After completion of the sessions, a TCS trained professional will provide follow up support through telephone conversations with each participant at one, three, six and 12-month increments.

There is a 15-person minimum to run the group. There is no cost to University students, faculty and staff.

If interested in attending the classes, or for more information, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 593-5190.
