UAMS Offering Program for Those Ready to Quit Smoking

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (News release) — If you or someone you know are wanting to kick the habit of smoking, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) may have just the thing for you.
 
Anyone ready to quit smoking is invited to participate in a free, seven-week, small-group program at UAMS, called the 'Freedom from Smoking' program.
 
Participants will receive one-on-one support, hear first-hand stories from former smokers, and get information on nicotine replacement therapies, healthy eating habits and stress management. 
 
More than one million Americans have ended their nicotine addictions through the 'Freedom From Smoking' program, which was first introduced almost 30 years ago by the American Lung Association (ALA).
 
The program is offered by the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute and uses materials provided by the ALA.
 
Beginning March 8, the group will meet for seven Wednesdays from 4-5:30 p.m. in room 10104 on the 10th floor of the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.
 
To register, contact certified tobacco treatment specialist Pat Franklin, APRN, at (501) 944-5934 or plfranklin@uams.edu.
